Tony Abbott speech: Allies go to ground and Labor lashes ‘loopy’ ex-PM over climate change views

The ABC’s London bureau chief Lisa Millar said on Twitter that her news team were “not allowed to hear [the] speech or report on it firsthand in London”, having been told it was a “non-media event” – despite parts of the speech being given to News Corp publications in advance. Guardian Australia’s editor Bridie Jabour said on Twitter the Guardian was blocked from attending. Fairfax Media also sought attendance but Mr Abbott’s office said the speech was by invitation only and not open to the media.
