Australia’s Minister for the Dark Arts Peter Dutton has been telling colleagues that he is quietly confident that he has the numbers to mount a successful leadership challenge against Prime Minister-elect Scott Morrison.
“Peter has been in a great mood all this week walking around the office smiling,” said a Liberal party insider. “It’s unusual to see him smile as it normally only happens when he sees someone suffer misfortune or he’s prepping for a leadership challenge.”
“We’ll see how it goes, the last one worked out a treat for him.”
When asked directly if he was planning to mount a challenge and why Minister Dutton replied: “You know what they say, never say never unless of course you’re talking about showing a bit of humanity in which case then you say never.”
“I will say though I will not be challenging Scott at this time however should my numbers man Matthias Cormann tell me I have the numbers then I shall be in like Flynn as they say.”
