After this morning’s disastrous Newspoll – which pegged Labor ahead of the Coalition 55 – 45 on a two-party preferred basis – it was pretty clear Malcolm Turnbull would need something to point his finger at. That something, after months and months of passive-aggressive silence, is none other than Tony Abbott.

We saw an outburst on Thursday and it had its desired impact on the Newspoll. It was exactly as predicted and as calculated. He knew exactly what he was doing and he did it. I’m not going to be distracted by that. It’s a fact of life. That’s what’s happened. I’m focused on the jobs of Australians that we are protecting by delivering the leadership.
Who could he possibly be talking about?
