Michelle Grattan on Australia's leadership wrangles

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:22 pm on 21 August 2018

For a brief moment, Australia's liberal party was once again in disarray. 

In the last few hours Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called for a spill and then survived a challenge from Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton. 

Mr Dutton then resigned cabinet. 

With more on this developing news across the ditch, is Chief political Correspondent at The Conversation, Michelle Grattan.
