Captain’s call

A clueless or embarassing decision by an incompetent political leader. This term is widely used in Australia in relation to decisions of conservative Primeminister Tony Abbot.

It was a captain’s call by Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbot to grant a Knighthood in January 2015 to Prince Philip, the Husband of the Queen of England. Another captain’s call by Mr Abbot was an attempted delisting 74,000 hectares of Tasmanian wilderness world heritage area, an application swiftly rejected by the United Nations’ world heritage committee in June 2014.
