New book exposes Turnbull’s role in Liberal Party destruction
Author Aaron Patrick joined Ben Fordham to talk about his new book which explores how Turnbull became a “destructive force” in the Liberal Party.
The book, Ego: Malcolm Turnbull’s and the Liberal Party civil war, details Turnbull’s journey from prime minister to apparent anti-Liberal.
“I think he deserves a lot of the credit, or the blame, for the destruction of the Morrison government,” Aaron Patrick said.
“He was having an impact in all those wealthy inner-city seats that all went teal.
“He was able to articulate why wealthy, wavering Liberals should not like Scott Morrison.
“Malcolm Turnbull played a role behind the scenes in some of the bigger scandals of the Morrison government, particularly some of the scandals that damaged Scott Morrison’s reputation with women… which all know was pretty decisive in this year’s election.”
