Why some Nationals want Tony Abbott to stay in the dark on the National Energy Guarantee – Politics – ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

A spotlight on Tony Abbott illuminates his face as he speaks. There are papers and a glass of water on the table below.

In fact, a number of them would rather Mr Abbott retreat and quieten down.

They worry he has politicised an important policy debate by muddying it with questions about leadership.

As one Nationals MP told the ABC: “Tony probably wants it to be like the ETS. That is not where we’re coming from. He decided he’s onto a winner. But he doesn’t have our support. It’s really a waste of time.

“No-one wants to tear down the Government.”
