Nationals Leader calls for Turnbull Resignation

PIAP Images (7)

Deputy Premier of NSW, John Barilaro has declared that he has ‘lost all hope’ in Malcolm Turnbull’s leadership and that he ‘should give Australians a Christmas gift and go before Christmas.’


 
This is the second time in as many days that the National Party have spoken out against the Prime Minister.
 
It’s widely accepted that Turnbull had a difficult choice: Announce a Banking Royal Commission, or face the humiliation of a backbench revolt of National Party MP’s who had committed to crossing the floor to establish one in significant numbers.
 
This latest round of public leadership brawls by the Nationals signal that all is not right within the coalition.
