Former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull was advised to change his political strategy by Angus Taylor after the Coalition almost lost the 2016 election. Taylor sent Turnbull a confidential memo in the wake of the election, but Turnbull never acknowledged it. Taylor eventually became so frustrated with Turnbull that he became one of the ministers who quit on him, with their actions leading to Turnbull being replaced by Scott Morrison. Taylor’s revelations are contained in a new book ‘The Surprise Party, How the Coalition Went from Chaos to Comeback’; his underlying message to Turnbull in his memo was that Turnbull was losing the ‘quiet Australians’.
