Turnbull runs with funny script

Turnbull adopts most meaningless slogan from US political comedy series, Veep. Can't he afford his how script writers?
It's been a turbulent week for Mr Turnbull: his popularity again plunged and on social media he has been lambasted for using a "hollow and oxymoronic" slogan made up for satirical political US TV show Veep.

The show's lead actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus said she was "dumbstruck" by Mr Turnbull's use of the phrase "continuity and change" during an interview on ABC's 7.30 this week — the slogan a carbon copy of one used on Louis-Dreyfus' spoof HBO series.

Mr Turnbull used it in an attempt to distance his government from that of former prime minister Tony Abbott.

Writer of the US TV series Simon Blackwell accused the prime minister of copying the slogan used in season four of the show.

"In S4 of Veep we came up with the most meaningless election slogan we could think of. Now adopted by Australian PM," Blackwell tweeted.
