But why? Well, some of what he says makes a bit of sense while the rest, we’ll leave up for you to decide.
In a series of tweets today, Murdoch has said “Country almost ungovernable with any Senate majority impossible for either side to execute. Bilateral agreement to change urgent if unlikely” and said it may be the only hope for a country that is almost ungovernable. Would you agree?

He went on to talk about jobs growth, the China FTA and drugs.
Looking at the polls today, Tony Abbott would win if there were a snap election. But who knows? Maybe he might hold on based on his biggest fan.
