Piers Akerman apologises for helping Malcolm Turnbull to the leadership of the Liberal Party :
As one who supported Malcolm Turnbull’s bid to oust Peter King in the electorate of Wentworth, and his subsequent deposing of former Opposition leader Brendan Nelson, I admit an error in judgment.
The Turnbull I admired then read widely, listened to argument and made up his mind on the evidence placed before him.

Global Warming Tarts? I've had one of those. The woman behind the counter in the cake shop warned me they were bloody hot, but when I bit into one, I discovered it was actually quite cold.
