abbott says turnbull must 'explain' if he loses two more newspolls

Tony Abbott has warned he will call on Malcolm Turnbull to explain why he should remain prime minister if he loses another two Newspolls.When Mr Turnbull rolled Mr Abbott as prime minister in 2015, he justified the change by saying the government’s loss of 30 consecutive News Corp opinion polls showed the Coalition was in an election-losing position.Mr Turnbull himself has now lost 28 in a row."It was the prime minister who set this test, and I guess if he fails the test it will be the prime minister who has to explain why the test was right for one and not right for the other," Mr Abbott told 2GB radio."It'll be up to him to tell us all why the test doesn't apply in his case."Mr Abbott repeated his policy suggestions of cutting immigration numbers and building a new coal-fired power stati

public 'clearly' want policy changes, says peter dutton

Immigration Minister Peter Dutton says even Malcolm Turnbull would acknowledge poor opinion polls will impact his leadership. A senior government minister has delivered a warning to Malcolm Turnbull that the public "clearly" wants a change in direction if he is to hold onto being Prime Minister.Immigration Minister Peter Dutton said even Mr Turnbull would acknowledge the impact Newspoll is having on his leadership and the Coalition must “listen” to the shift taking place.“What we need to do is to turn polls around, if that’s the measure, we have to make tough decisions,” Mr Dutton told 2GB radio.Mr Turnbull blamed Tony Abbott’s opinion polls numbers as one of the reasons for challenging him for the top job back in September 2015.  “We have lost 30 Newspolls in a row.

malcolm turnbull holds his nerve as liberals sweat on tony abbott's next grenade

Malcolm Turnbull needs a solution to his Tony Abbott problem and fast. That problem is not retaining the votes of party room colleagues but those of conservative voters.While MPs and ministers believe Abbott was the main casualty of last week's explosive attack, many also feel the situation should not be allowed to fester, nor can Turnbull afford to simply limp forward until the next Abbott landmine.
The comments of former prime minister Tony Abbott are always reportable. If Turnbull had ever been tempted to elevate his nemesis to cabinet to keep him close and busy, as Julia Gillard did with Kevin Rudd, Abbott has now made that option unthinkable.At ministerial level, Abbott's declared intent to continue speaking up for core conservative values is viewed with a surprising degree of equan

malcolm turnbull nears the danger zone

For fractious Coalition MPs amassed under Malcolm Turnbull, Monday's depressing 47-53 Newspoll was old news. Fourteen surveys old.

The voters had decided, he fulminated, denial was just that.Turnbull's promise to fix it was understandably enticing. Yet he now finds himself around halfway to the same benchmark for removal.For voters, the descent of the Liberal government 2.0 is even less surprising.AdvertisementMPs confirm this. Ordinary people are sick of politics. Sick of arguments, sick of Trump, of broken promises, browned off with hollow politicia
