Getting out while the getting is good?

Just in from Michelle Grattan at The Age:  Liberal powerbroker Nick Minchin to quit politics

Minchin is one of the Lib's best strategists so I can't help but wonder whether he saw the writing on the wall for the Party after Abbott's performance yesterday?

It does however give the Monk the opportunity to shift Barnaby Rabble to a nice and quite portfolio (perhaps one where he can accompany Bronnie Bishop to nursing home morning teas) and it ensures that Minchin is nowhere to be found when the party starts to ask the hard questions about how the Monk got elected leader in the first place
