Malcolm Turnbull, former leader Australian Liberal Party
Testing the political, cultural and economic climate in Australia, Stephen Sackur asks Malcolm Turnbull if he has ambitions to retake the leadership of the Liberal Party.
HARDtalk is in Australia for a series of interviews to test the political, cultural and economic climate. Though Australia is enjoying an economic boom, its people seem dissatisfied with the vision and leadership of the country's politicians.
Malcolm Turnbull is one of Australia's most flamboyant politicians. Not so long ago he was seen as a prime minister in waiting; he was leader of the opposition Liberal Party until ousted just over a year ago. But is he content to be an MP and a shadow minister? Or, as Stephen Sackur asks him, does he have ambitions to retake the leadership of the Liberal Party and to become Prime Minister of Australia?
