    Tony Abbott in Canberra for Cabinet meeting as leadership speculation mounts

    MPs today continued to leak against the Prime Minister despite a staunch defence of his leadership to the National Press Club in Canberra on Monday.
    “Cabinet ministers have been ringing me and telling me things are just untenable,” one MP said.
    “Julie Bishop and Tony Abbott now have a Gillard-Rudd like relationship. It can’t go on like this,” another said.
