Ratfucked: Barnaby Joyce Has Absolutely Gone In On Malcolm Turnbull

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has been stitched up by his former deputy PM, Barnaby Joyce, who has insisted the big man should do "the right thing" and resign if polls don't improve by Christmas.

Mr Turnbull's leadership is under a cloud after the coalition government lost 30 Newspolls in a row, the same as one of the metrics he used to topple Tony Abbott in 2015.

While he has time, the Member for New England said there were eyes on Turnbull, and there could be rumblings as the next Federal Election approached.

Joyce said it would be a lie to say everything in the party room was fine, but he wanted to see the Prime Minister succeed, and firmly told host Peta Credlin the Coalition was a "long long way" from a spill.

Turnbull, who led his party to a narrow win at the 2016 election, was forced to downplay the significance of the survey. "People want us to succeed". "The polls are about 50/50 - that's not a bad position to be in", he said. "They have all said that Malcolm Turnbull will lead us to the next election so I think we need to look at their comments in that context", Ms Bishop also said. The more things change, etc etc...

Australia has avoided recession for over a quarter of a century.

"What they don't want is a Shorten government", he told Sky News.

Turnbull insisted he still had the support of the party and his focus was not on "personalities or the politics", but reinforcing his message that were Labor to take power they would be a "high-taxing, anti-business government".

Since then, hope has given way to widespread disappointment.

"Instead, he has caved into the right on nearly every occasion and delivered unpopular and at times destructive policies".

"I don't think it was a very useful contribution from Barnaby Joyce", he said on Monday night's program.

But the former Deputy Prime Minister's comments have been met with criticism, after he lashed out at Mr Turnbull earlier this year in the midst of his affair scandal, claiming the PM was interfering in the National Party's leadership.

"Unless there's a major shock, the assumption is that the government is heading toward a modest, but clear, defeat", said Orr.
