Unable to any longer fit inside the broad church which it has always claimed to be. All its members are fighting for the few remaining pews.
It matters little who becomes or remains Prime Minister during the next few weeks. There is little chance of this Parliament lasting to the end of the year. With Section 44 in play we could see a loss of that one seat majority in the HoR. Further revelations are expected on a daily basis and the High Court is in for a busy time.
The only way they will win an election this year, or next year will be to have the full weight of the Murdoch Machine behind them. Sadly for the Coalition, there are splits within that machine as well. There are those money-worshippers who will follow Turnbull to the Caymans at every opportunity and there are those bigoted Nazis who desperately want the books burnt and the Duttonmeister to be in charge.
So the media (art) is imitating the Liberal Party (life). Sorry to have to explain a literary allusion but with the Naplan results just out very few in our society would understand it without a cheat-sheet.
To mix legendary allusions, the Coalition is as extinct as the Norwegian Blue of Monty Python fame.
Except that the worms escaping from its body are still eating away at what is left of our society.
