    Never heard of the word, but when it comes to Abbott, I love it. Seems the cabinet meeting was a beauty. Pyne refused to back down. Main defiant ones were Turnbull and Brandis, and of course Pyne.

    Was it Abbott that read the riot act, or did his ministers.

    How many weeks this sitting. Will he survive,

    Yes, always fighting our Tony. The family finds it a bit of a worry. Have no idea how to handle him. Don’t know what to do next.
