Sky News host Sharri Markson has spoken of the “threat to the leadership” of Deputy Premier Michael McCormack, with Nationals MPs “agitating” for a switch back to Barnaby Joyce, or even looking ahead to David Littleproud amid spill speculation.
Ms Markson says the threat comes after a “disastrous week in Parliament” for Michael McCormack.
“He was vulnerable anyway with his leadership seen as weak and ineffective by his internal critics,” Ms Markson said.
Ms Markson spoke to Sky News Political Editor Andrew Clennell about the issue.
“I think there’s a greater chance than not there will be a spill tomorrow,” Mr Clennell said.
“And I think Barnaby Joyce is close to getting the numbers”.
