Tony abbott axed from prime minister role
After a blitzkrieg day of party wrangling Tony Abbott has lost 44 – 54 to Malcolm Turnbull.
Julie Bishop has kept her role As deputy leader beating Kevin Andrews 70-30.
The vote is very divisive with only the allegiances of 6 liberal party members sealing the fate of Tony Abbott.
Abbott lasted longer than we expected after leadership spill motion earlier this year, but that incident showed the weakness in his support, he survived the previous vote with approximately 2:1 in favor, but it was quite divisive even then.
Ultimately Tony Abbots incompetence, media bumbling coupled with his insane budget finally undid him.
