    Malcolm and Lucy Turnbull are believed to be headed for New York for six weeks where they own an apartment in the famous twin-towered building, The Century.


    Malcolm Turnbull is expected to depart Australia for New York for the next six weeks following his resignation from the seat of Wentworth tomorrow.

    "Failed PM"? Most PMs are failed PMs.

    Morrison isn't, yet. But he's only been in a few days.
    Turnball got taken down by his own party. So a failure
    Abbott was taken down by his own party. So a failure
    Rudd was defeated in an election. So a failure
    Gillard got taken down by her party. So a failure
    Rudd (again) was taken down by his party. So a double failure.
    Howard was defeated in an election. So a failure
    Keating was defeated in an election. So a failure.
    Hawke was taken down by his own party. So a failure
    Fraser was defeated in an election. So a failure.
    Whitlam was defeated in an election. So a failure.

    Wait, so going back decades, we've only got one non-failure. A soon to be failure if history has anything to say.

    The Greenies think 25 million people in Australia can reduce global warming! Now, who is smoking something funny?
