Day 12 of Good Government in Australia

During a press conference on 9 February Prime Minister Tony Abbott declared to the world that good government starts today in Australia.

On Day 12 of his new leaf The Australian reported:

Abbott sits for much of the day in his office in Parliament House pondering national security, Islamic State and reading Winston Churchill. He has 50 staff in his office but he insists on writing many of his speeches as Credlin, sitting in the office next door, works the phones, managing the detail.
She is, as Abbott himself has said, “the fiercest political warrior” he has ever worked with.
This is the Australian duumvirate, a new form of government in which Abbott and Credlin run the country. They are, in reality, co-prime ministers.
