Cory Bernardi to spruik Australian Conservative in Liberal Party heartland

Posted July 12, 2017

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Federal Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry discuss a potential levee for Rockhampton earlier this year.

Malcolm Turnbull has horrified conservatives by claiming Liberal Party founder Sir Robert Menzies was a progressive leader, but experts say the Prime Minister's summation of the party foundations is right.

In terms of Australia's third most popular party that continues to be One Nation, the Pauline Hanson led party kept 11 per cent of voters in their corner, with the Greens enjoying the support of 10 per cent.

Turnbull held a press conference at Number 10 Downing Street, where he is now holding talks with UK Prime Minister Theresa May.

The Borough Market only recently reopened after the June 3 attack, in which eight people were killed and nearly 50 wounded.

LONDON (AP) - Australia's leader has expressed confidence in Britain's plans to forge global trade deals once it leaves the European Union, saying Monday that his country will jump at the chance to strike a free trade deal with the United Kingdom.

"It's probably time for (Mr Abbott) to move on", Ms Landry said on monday, according to The Courier Mail and The Morning Bulletin. "We don't muck around".

"We'll move as soon as Britain is lawfully able to enter into a free trade agreement".

May also told the news conference that she wanted "the broadest possible consensus" for Brexit to make sure the deal she negotiates with the European Union is the right one for Britain.

He said Brexit would bring "big horizons, big opportunities" for Britain.

Turnbull, who earlier met with embattled UK Prime Minister Theresa May, echoed her call on Internet companies to crack down on extremists who use their sites to recruit supporters and spread propaganda.

Turnbull praised the "decisive action" of police in shooting dead the three attackers who, wearing fake suicide vests, had rammed pedestrians on London Bridge and then stabbed people at the nearby market.

May and Turnbull also spoke to business owners in the food market, which is surrounded by restaurants, bars and cafes.

Turnbull said it was "very moving" to meet with emergency service personnel who worked that night, and the two leaders hailed their cooperation on counter-terrorism, security and defence.
