Talk about resorting to silence!

But then, the major parties historically have different approaches to opposition. A Coalition leader who's not in government is LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION, focussing on aggressively and negatively attacking the Government on everything, while doing policy development "on the run". An ALP leader who isn't in government serves as SHADOW PM or SHADOW PREMIER, taking a low-key approach to opposition in and focussing on the future (the next election and their next period of government), i.e., developing alternative policies, developing an alternative leadership team, and rebuilding links with the electorate.

Er.... The LNP is in government for the present. Tony Abbott is the PM not Bill Shorten.
