The cancellation of a bus route in a suburb affluent next to the beach can derail the Australian government.
Frustrated residents living in Bronte, in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, have threatened the new prime minister, Scott Morrison, with claims that they will vote for the opposition in the crucial upcoming by-elections after the direct route to the city's CBD It was drained.
Despite being a state issue, the anger towards liberals at the federal level is manifesting itself among the annoying locals who feel they have been cut off after the cancellation of bus route 378.

After the spill of the leadership and the resignation of Malcolm Turnbull, the seat of the former prime minister of Wentworth is at stake in a partial election, which is expected to be held in October.
The by-elections are critical for the Coalition, which could plunge even further into a minority government if they lose their seats.
Residents of Bronte threaten to vote in the labor sector due to their negligence towards politicians, which puts Wentworth's job in jeopardy.
The Coalition has occupied the seat since 1901.
The leader of the protest group and Waverley Labor Councilor, Paula Masselos, said she has seen residents mourn the canceled route.
Travelers now have to cross a "very dangerous" intersection in Bondi Junction to board a bus heading to the city, reports News.com.au.
"If you have children, it's really horrible." And people also say that they are adding an hour to their trips to and from the city every day, "said Masselos.
The drama of the bus route began in October 2015, when service 378 was replaced by route 440, an extended service from Rozelle to Bronte Beach. Then, the 440 service was modified in November 2017 and now ends in Bondi Junction.

Tamarama resident Alex Wiggins said his family was forced to consider investing in a car because of the "ridiculous" change in service.
"They never asked us (about how to change the buses) and they just went ahead and changed them, I voted Liberal all my life, but there's no way I can vote for them if they keep ignoring what we're saying," Wiggins told News. com.au.
Despite Transport for NSW's claims that the change was made in accordance with popular travel patterns, residents said they were not consulted.
A spokesperson for Transport for NSW argued that the changes have made it easier for people to get to the city.
But, Masselos said the locals do not agree.
& # 39; People are not even being told. They are walking to the bus stops and seeing a small notice saying that their service has been canceled. So it's like what the hell is going on? she said.
