Two more victories in Australia

“Just days after Mr Abbott won the Liberal leadership from Malcolm Turnbull, the party coasted to victory in the Melbourne seat of Higgins, vacated by former treasurer Peter Costello, and the north Sydney electorate of Bradfield, formerly held by Brendan Nelson.

The solid performance surprised many who thought the Liberals might suffer a backlash due to Mr Abbott’s decision to overhaul the party’s climate changing policy, withdrawing support for the introduction of an emissions trading scheme (ETS), which is favoured by Labor.

Mr Abbott believes the results prove the public is uneasy about Labor’s ETS.” “Abbott defies doubters with poll wins” h/t Andrew Bolt
