Australian Labor frontbencher: It’s not business as usual in wake of leadership spill

This is a government where many of the senior members of that government can’t stand the person that has been elected to lead that political party, where it’s very clear that a number of senior members in the government promised both Malcolm Turnbull and Tony Abbott that they would vote for them in last night’s ballot, which is why Tony Abbott was confident going into that ballot.

— Labor frontbencher Anthony Albanese, speaking after Malcom Turnbull deposed Tony Abbott as Prime Minister of Australia. Albanese also pointedly declared, “The idea that it’s business as usual today in the Coalition government is just farcical. The fact is, this is a government that is at war with itself” (via The Guardian).
