Turnbull dumps NEG to save job

August 21, 2018

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull yesterday dumped a key element of his signature energy legislation, admitting he didn’t have the numbers in parliament if it was attached to a 26 per cent emissions reduction target. That has been welcomed by Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi.

This morning Mr Turnbull almost didn't have the numbers in the party room to save his job, fighting off a leadership challenge from Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton 48-35.

Senator Bernardi has told Paul Murray Live on Sky News, Turnbull's love of Green ideology is fooling no one.
