ABC News Story: Liberal leadership turmoil. March 1, 2015..
Liberal leadership: Josh Frydenberg says Tony Abbott will never be able to convince some colleagues he should remain Prime Minister.
Assistant Treasurer Josh Frydenberg says Tony Abbott will never be able to convince some of his Liberal colleagues that he should remain in the top job.
SMr Frydenberg said he did NOT think the party should change leaders now and “hoped” there would not be another spill motion moved in the party room.
“There’s certainly going to be members of my own side who want to see a change in leader,” he said.
“But I don’t think anything the Prime Minister does will convince them that he should stay in the role.
“If he delivered the Gettysburg address, if he won a Nobel Prize, they’d still take the position that they want a change in leader.
“My view is though, that that is a minority view“.
Mr Abbott survived a leadership spill motion 61 votes to 39 just over a fortnight ago.
