Federal Opposition Leader Brendan Nelson has called for a leadership vote tomorrow. Way to overshadow “Tip” Costello’s book launch! Will Malcolm Turnbull really have the numbers he claims behind him for the win?
Possum has Nelson’s press release over at Pollytix, and a commentor at Pollbludger relays the rumour that Tony Abbott may have done a deal with Turnbull and be contesting the deputy position as well (but has the deputy position been declared vacant along with the leader position?).
Someone’s memoirs about the last year or so in the Liberal Party ought to make good reading eventually (not Tip’s, by all accounts, but I reckon Brendan could give good memoir in the fullness of time).
