leadership outburst Tony Abbott told Liberal louis vuitton bags japan prices defector Cory Bernardi last year that he hoped to return to leadership, but would not force a leadership spill for Malcolm Turnbull's job.
It's understood that Senator Bernardi then moved to directly warn the prime minister of the leadership threat on February 7, during a louis vuitton bags leather private conversation earlier this month when he quit the Liberal Party. Sky News understands that Mr Abbott told Senator Bernardi he would not challenge for leadership as the public would never accept another round of louis vuitton yellow purses 'political cannibalism'. But he left the door open to returning to the top job if Mr Turnbull quit before the next election. The conversation between Mr Abbott and Senator Bernardi about the leadership louis vuitton at saks fifth avenue raleigh took place late last year, before the conservative MP quit the Liberal Party. It's understood that Senator Bernardi warned the Prime Minister when he quit that his enemies within the Liberal Party were 'coming after him'' for the leadership and that he 'didn't want any part of it.' Senator Bernardi has told Sky News that he will not comment on private conversations. The revelations have prompted the prime minister to declare he will 'not be provoked' by Mr Abbott. Finance Minister Mathias Cormann, who was one of Mr Abbott's most loyal supporters, warned his leadership hopes were over. 'I can't see any scenario in which there is a return of Tony Abbott to the leadership of the Liberal Party','' Senator Cormann told Sky News. Mr Turnbull, who visited a microphone factory in Sydney on Friday, said he was focused on jobs and investment. 'I don't think Australians are impressed by that latest outburst and I'm not going to be distracted by it,' Mr Turnbull told reporters in Sydney on Friday. 'It's sad.' The prime minister said he didn't 'just give speeches', he delivered reform such as the Australian Building and Construction Commission and overhauling MPs' entitlements singling out two policies Mr Abbott failed to deliver in government. 'We're getting things which we couldn't or wouldn't or didn't get done in the last parliament,' Mr Turnbull said. 'Every member of the government has got to ask the question are they contributing to the success of the government?' Conservatives insist Mr Turnbull could launch a 'crash or crash through' fight for gay marriage because he doesn't want to be seen to be a 'do nothing' PM, and this could trigger a leadership change Mr Abbott's supporters are describing the Turnbull government as 'the Malcolm vanity project', a reference the former PM alluded to in a speech last night. A Liberal minister has told Sky News Mr Abbott has little support in the party room for any challenge. 'Well, the mad uncle is out of the attic now. But Abbott's got no support,' the minister said. Finance Minister Mathias Cormann, who was a strong supporter of Mr Abbott throughout his prime ministership, told Sky News he was saddened by his decision to provide 'more and more destructive' commentary. 'He's not helping our cause, he's not helping our country, he's not helping himself, much of what he says is either wrong or inconsistent with what he did,' he said. Senator Cormann said he was flabbergasted by the former prime minister's comments on Sky News, in which he warned the Coalition was 'drifting to defeat' if it fails to lift its performance. Liberal frontbencher Christopher Pyne has told Sky News that Tony Abbott shouldn't be criticising his own side of politics.
'When you're throwing stones, it's important not to stand in a glass house, and that seems to be what Tony Abbott has done.' 'I want to remove the personal from the subject, there's no personal criticism of Tony Abbott, but he's given us five challenges, and it's important to look at the consistency of his own record.'.
