Newspoll from The Australian out today with the detail at Pollytics.

It is interesting that LNP voters consider Hockey to be the best candidate to lead the Liberal Party. So it’s lucky that Hockey has Turnbull’s back, as he told him as late as Saturday night. But on Sunday, The Australian reported there were strong signs that Hockey was prepared to put his ‘right foot in and shake it all about’ and was having a chat and playing footsies with Dutton as a potential deputy leader.

Today, @Latikambourke reports that Liberal sources have confirmed Hockey will contest. Even if he is the least competent public administrator.

While strong opposition can make for good government, I’m sure most will agree the leadership spill has been a blast and it is not over yet….

There’s Tony Abbott (warning: NSFA*) who sees no evil. Climate change? What climate change?

And Kevin Andrews may even be willing to selflessly offer himself up for further ridicule…..

It’s been rough, and it may get rougher still, so Family First will provide a sanctuary. After a party room meeting this morning, the church of Fielding has decided to offer rest for the weary and hope for the downtrodden, with complimentary ‘disinfectant’ for all.

Update. Nielsen Poll.

Mungo MacCallum:

This is supposed to be a contest about the soul of the Liberal Party? The arsehole, perhaps.

*Not safe for anyone.

    Yeah! Tony Abbott for Opposition Leader. He’s an Oxford student, would offer flexibility in policy, would regularly incite mutiny and would make sure the oceans were warm all year round so he could continually display his sexy body.

    ribbet, did you just use “Tony Abbott” and “sexy body” in the same sentence?
    (No, now I realise you didn’t but I have!)

    It now seems that Hockey won’t vote for a spill, but Abbott will?

    Then there’s this:

    If the Liberal calls a spill and Turbull loses expect Rudd to call an election for March ’10.

    Have a happy leave Federal Libs-it’ll be your last.

    Good on you Abbott! You’ve just made sure the Libs won’t win the next 2 elections.
