Malcolm Turnbull has challenged his Liberal enemies to reveal why they “blew up the government” in the move against him 11 weeks ago, naming the plotters in an interview that shed new light on the chaotic leadership spill.

Mr Turnbull also relayed an extraordinary statement from News Corp executive chairman Rupert Murdoch that “Malcolm’s got to go” and backed claims that MPs were bullied and intimidated to vote for the change.

The insurgency was led by Peter Dutton, was obviously strongly supported by Tony Abbott and others. Scott did not support it and he’s said that publicly,” he said.

He named Mr Dutton, Mr Abbott, Mathias Cormann, Mitch Fifield, Michaelia Cash, Greg Hunt, Steve Ciobo, Michael Keenan and Angus Taylor for the spill.
