MALCOLM TURNBULL: The government is elected to represent the people and the money the government spends is the people's money, obviously, but this is a policy that the government is seeking to put into place in its capacity as the government that represents the Australian people.

Turnbull says on his site that "in order to achieve lower rates we needed to broaden the tax base so that more income [is] available to be taxed.
Indeed, Malcolm was the general counsel and company secretary at Consolidated Press Holdings from 1983 to 1985, a period in which CPH was controversially privatised for not much.
Malcolm was never a tax lawyer, so to fit him up with being the architect of any of those aggressive tax schemes scrutinised by Costigan is certainly unfair.

 IPA in the News | Turnbull a force for change
But what is certain is that Malcolm Turnbull's entry into federal politics at the next election will be just as momentous as was that of those three.
The fact that, according to any measure of ability, Turnbull when he becomes an MP should immediately be given a senior frontbench position is the first reason for the significance of his preselection.
Turnbull's preselection is also significant because of its longer-term consequences for the Liberal Party and for national politics generally.

 Malcolm Turnbull: if he ruled the world
Malcolm Turnbull is running for preselection for the safe Liberal seat of Wentworth, but even allies like Sydney broadcaster Alan Jones question whether he has the numbers to win next February's tussle against the incumbent Peter King — or whether he's left his run too late.
It begs the question why Turnbull would want to put himself through the ordeal of a preselection, but to query his resolve is to invite a flash of the famous Turnbull impatience.
Malcolm has been cast as the puppeteer behind his wife Lucy Turnbull's decision to boycott the award of the Sydney Peace Prize to Palestinian advocate Hanan Ashrawi.

Lieutenant-Colonel Malcolm Turnbull, that is, of the Alabama State Militia.
Despite that, though, the Liberals have big financial problems, and one of Turnbull’s achievements before he resigned as treasurer to make his run for Wentworth was to bring home to the party how serious the situation is. He delivered the message most bluntly at the Liberal national convention in June.
Turnbull, as far as I can ascertain, has not put his suggested remedies on the public record, but he has talked about them privately.

Malcolm Turnbull's bid to be the next Liberal MP for the prestigious federal seat of Wentworth in Sydney's eastern suburbs is as daring as any corporate raid he has been involved with in his 25-year career as a banker and lawyer.
While Turnbull, Australian Republican Movement chairman, was understandably frustrated by elements of the Liberal Party during the 1990s republican campaigns, he never loathed the party itself.
Once again, harking back to the 1999 referendum campaign, I never thought that Turnbull was as visceral in his contempt for Howard's undermining of the republican case as some other members of the "yes vote" team.

Far from increasing the power of the Prime Minister, Malcolm Fraser said on Sunday, the republican amendments to be voted on in November will actually reduce the Prime Minister's power and result in a more stable constitutional system.
Sir James Killen, a former colleague of Mr Fraser, was similarly dismissive and added the gratuitous (and irrelevant) observation that Mr Fraser had been unwise to hold the 1983 election at the time he did.
