As you're all aware, there was a ballot conducted in the party room for the leadership of the Liberal party. The successful candidate was Scott Morrison. And he won this vote by 45 votes to 40 for Peter Dutton.
In relation to the deputy's position, this was won in an overwhelming sense, in a majority, an absolute majority by Josh Frydenberg.
We followed the due precedent of the Liberal party. And that's how the ballots and the process was conducted.
In the party room meeting today, I was impressed by how many of my colleagues spoke or voted for loyalty above disloyalty, how the insurgents were not rewarded by electing Mr Dutton, for example, but instead my successor, who I wish the very best, of course, Scott Morrison, a very loyal and effective treasurer.
Well, Phil, it's obvious. If you're dis - the Australians will be just dumbstruck and so appalled by the conduct of the last week. To imagine that a government would be rocked by this sort of disloyalty and deliberate insurgency is the best way to describe it. Deliberate destructive action at a time when there are differences on policy, but frankly, all of them were sort of able to be resolved with a little bit of goodwill.
