‘Get rid of Mr Turnbull or we will get rid of you’: Emotional listener pleads for change

An elderly listener has called in pleading for the Liberal Party to ditch their leader as she struggles to keep her head above water.

Holding back tears, pensioner Elaine tells Alan Jones she’s now having to skip meals to pay her bills.

She’s launched a scathing attack on Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, saying it’s obvious “he couldn’t care less”.

“I’m an aged pensioner who’s down to two meals a day.

“I don’t gamble, I don’t drink, I go to church and that’s it. But the electricity bill for an elderly person, to try and keep warm…”

Her comments come after a horror weekend for the federal government, with the Liberal Party losing the three seats they contested during the Super Saturday by-elections.

Elaine has a strong message for the Coalition and Alan hopes they’re listening.

“Get rid of Mr Turnbull or we the public will get rid of you,” she says.

“We’d rather put up with Mr Shorten for a term and then we can vote him out.”
