Has HBO Show Veep Affected Real Life Politics?

Veep is short for Vice President. As a result, it should come as no surprise to learn that it is the name of an American political satire starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer, a fictional Vice President and then President of the United States. Since it started running in 2012, Veep has received numerous awards and accolades, so it is natural for curious individuals to wonder whether it has had an impact on real life or not. Has Veep Affected Real Life Politics? So far, the single best piece of evidence that Veep has impacted real life politics is Malcolm Turnbull’s "continuity and change" slogan, which sounded a lot like Meyer’s "continuity with change." For those who are unfamiliar with the name, Turnball is the current Prime Minister of Australia, who rose to his position upon dislodging the previous prime minister, Tony Abbott, from the leadership of the Liberal Party through a leadership challenge. As a result, when Australia held its federal election in 2016, Turnbull sought to distance his administration from his predecessor’s administration without alienating their shared supporters at the same time, thus resulting in "continuity and change" in a blatant attempt to accomplish two aims with a single slogan.
