Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull racks up 30th Newspoll loss

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull racks up 30th Newspoll loss

"The reality is that we've learnt from our mistakes", Shorten said.

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.

When he toppled former Prime Minister Tony Abbott in 2015, Mr Turnbull justified the move by noting that Mr Abbott had trailed the Labor opposition party in 30 consecutive Newspoll opinion surveys.

The Turnbull government has been plagued with a series of bad news stories at the hands of its senior players, all of which have likely contributed to the consistently poor Newspoll results.

Shorten was forced to address fire from his own side after Kevin Rudd took to social media to criticise "Bill "I'm with the coup" Shorten" for his role in previous Labor leadership challenges.

Mr Abbott says the ride was planned at least six months ago given the logistics of organising an event for 50 riders and a support team.

"I regret making the remarks about 30 Newspolls at the time", he said to reporters at a press conference Sydney, adding, "but what I promised to do was provide economic leadership and traditional cabinet government and I've done both". "I do have the confidence of my colleagues ... and no one is suggesting I don't. I think the other 148, if they were being honest, would tell you that if the opportunity came their way they'd be interested as well". "We should be the party of higher wages and more affordable housing, and that means scaling back the current rate of immigration".

"It's really, I suppose, something for Malcolm to explain why it applied to me, but shouldn't apply now", he told 2GB radio.

Sensex loses 93 points in early trade
SBI (-1.6%), Vedanta (-1.6%), Infosys (-1%), Tata Motors (-1.3%) and L&T (-1.3%) were the top losers in today's trade. In the morning Nifty 50 opened 131.30 points up at 10,259.70 and the Sensex opened 400 points up at 33,420.

"I'm here to serve in whatever capacity my party would like". They want us to focus on their childcare services, they want us to focus on schools, they want us to focus on hospitals and health, they want us to focus on national security and they want us to ensure that great jobs remain in Australia ...

Mr Abbott is a member of the so-called Monash Group, a newly formed gathering of conservative backbenchers, calling for taxpayers' money to be invested in a new coal power station.

He said the government should put "pensioners before Paris", referring to the global climate change agreement Australia has signed, and said energy policy should not be restrained by "meaningless" carbon emission targets.

"I think if you look at who would win the gold medal of disunity, it would be the Coalition".

"We are in a close, tight political environment".

The Turnbull government has not won a Newspoll since the July 2016 election.

"My job is not there to be distracted by polls, but to focus on our policies and on delivering for the Australian people".

Asked if he would call a leadership vote if he recorded a 30th Newspoll loss, he said: "No".
