Tony Abbott in trouble and turmoil in QLD

campbelltonyPrime Minister Tony Abbott was in campaigning mode as he faced the National Press Club today, campaigning not to win an election but to keep his position as Leader. With promises that he has listened and learned when it comes to his “Captain’s Calls” on parental leave and Knighthoods, Abbott was hoping his return to core messages on stopping the boats and scrapping the carbon tax would be enough to shore up public support.
