Turnbull on the ‘madness’ and ‘insurgency’ that pushed him out as PM

August 24, 2018. Malcolm Turnbull, in Canberra at his farewell press conference as prime minister, speaks about the “determined insurgency” from both the party room and “powerful voices in the media” which he says “really to if not bring down the government, certainly bring down my prime ministership”. He adds “it was extraordinary. It was described as madness by many, and I think it’s difficult to describe it in any other way”. Mr Turnbull also says he was impressed by how many of his colleagues “spoke or voted for loyalty above disloyalty and how the insurgents were not rewarded by electing Mr Dutton”.
