Exclamation Turnbull defeats Dutton in Liberal Party Leadership Showdown

If you have been following Federal politics the past few days and the fracas over the yo-yoing with the NEG and murmurings of Dutton making a move, well I think most of us can breathe a little easier given the following that unfolded in a little over 15 minutes:

Not really surprised! Was a stupid move by Dutton to challenge him now

I don't know whether cutting migration was solely his discussion or not, but I am glad that he resigned as Home Affairs Minister

Finally we can see some betterment in DHA.
I will thank Turnbull next time he's in the office. He just works below my office in Sydney. Often see him in the elevator when he's here haha!

I think it is too early to pop open the champagne. While Dutton will be gone from DHA, the ruling party will still have to appeal to its core of conservative supporters, so I am sure that nothing will change with immigration numbers. But it should not get worse for now.

Also, this is probably just the start of the end for Turnbull. It's just a matter of time before there will be another leadership challenge. Earliest 2 to 3 months down the road - definitely before the polls. If Dutton gets in then, expect things to get worse then.

There's speculation he might mount a proper challenge as early as Thursday as well - Dutton that is.

Don't forget there's that Section 44 controversy with Dutton too, whether that is something substantial or just a clever smoke screen by Turnbull is left to be seen.

All in well played by Abbott in the background in undermining Turnbull since he was ousted, and earlier still, since their sparring on energy policy when in opposition.

Agree. Abbott still has beef with Turnbull.

And Dutton might have to step down as a MP if the s44 does hold true.

Basically Turnbull did himself no favors...as he alienated both sides of his own party by trying to pander to both sides.

Anyway, interesting times ahead, but for now, I think the immigration will still be same ol same ol.

So Scott Morrison wins with 45 votes (Dutton 40) - lets see how much damage control and healing ScoMo can do before the next election.
