The Baillieu crisis is good for Abbott

A 'chaos' narrative of the type dominating federal politics doesn't fit Ted Baillieu's resignation. Most likely, his move will look shrewd by the time of the federal election.

The Victorian Liberal Party appears to have pulled off a spectacular trick – every bit as daring as pulling a tablecloth sharply from under a set table of crockery. And as with that old trick, the strong likelihood is that nothing is broken, and every cup except former Premier Ted Baillieu is in the same place as before.
