At the age of 50, say, or 45, a politician should be expected to finally know his -- or her -- best mind. Let them at that age have the right to go into an annual draft to join a more compatible team, as do footballers when they join another club.
And so the Liberals could trade the multiculturalist Petro Georgiou for Labor's one-Australia Martin Ferguson. Labor could take soft Bruce Baird -- please -- in exchange for the pro-freedom hawk Michael Danby. And wouldn't Malcolm Turnbull, so GQ modern, make Labor an excellent leader in the Hawke mode? Beazley, I'm sure, would make a nice swap, fitting in snugly as John Howard's pro-war Minister for Defence.
As if Beazley could fit snugly anwhere.... And Julia Gillard? Well, she can go join the Democrats (do they still exist?)
