Malcolm Turnbull is the leader who should be worried about leadership challenges

Perhaps it is Malcolm Turnbull who should be worried about a leadership challenge after the by-elections not Bill Shorten. The Australian this morning is certainly stirring the pot by giving prominence to yet another of those attacks by Tony Abbott on climate policy.This time it seems the ex Prime Minister brooding on the backbench has support from the National Party arm of the Coalition who want a $5 billion dose of socialist style government intervention to have three coal fired power stations built.Sorting out that kind of policy nonsense should be enough for PM Turnbull to put any thought of a federal election this year finally out of his mind. The only vote he will have to worry about is within his Liberal Party should he do poorly at the by-elections.
