PM 'relaxed, comfortable' during protest

Malcolm Turnbull has used a favourite term of one of his predecessors to describe how he felt during a too-close-for-comfort protest in Melbourne this week.

"I felt safe and comfortable, relaxed and comfortable, as John Howard would say, at all times," the prime minister told Neil Mitchell on 3AW radio on Friday about a female protester jumping on stage and getting to within five metres of him as he addressed a business lunch on Wednesday.

The Australian Federal Police was investigating the incident and presenting him with a report, Mr Turnbull said.
