On 21 August 2018, 35 Liberal MPs cast their vote against Malcolm Turnbull, effectively signalling the end of his leadership. Three days later, the deed was done, and Scott Morrison was anointed prime minister. Tony Abbott's relentless campaign of destabilisation, helped along by his acolytes in the parliament and by his powerful media mates, the betrayals of colleagues, and the rise of the religious right all played a part in Turnbull's downfall. But so did Turnbull's own poor political judgement. Nevertheless, the sheer brutality of his removal left many Liberals aghast. As it turned out, redemption came with Morrison's unexpected single-handed 2019 election victory. Turnbull's road ended in ruins, as it was always bound to and as he always knew it would, as he predicted to Niki Savva less than three years before it happened. This is the inside story of what happened - and what happened next.
