Malcolm Turnbull drops 'midair C-bomb' after boozy gala

MALCOLM Turnbull gave Tony Abbott a scathing, expletive-ridden assessment of his prime ministership in a rant aboard a government plane after the pair and several ministers attended a booze-fuelled, celebrity-studded Sydney party.

Fourteen months before he snatched the prime ministership, Mr Turnbull pulled the ripcord on Mr Abbott in a vitriolic spray on a plane with three ministers and five Coalition staff members. The critique was so venomous that several sources claim it even included the C-bomb.

The Daily Telegraph can reveal how one of the great untold clashes between the Liberal Party heavyweights unfolded aboard the plush, wood-panelled VIP plane heading to Canberra after The Australian newspaper's 50th birthday party in Sydney on July 15, 2014.

A spokesman for Mr Turnbull said last night, however, he does not use that sort of language.

Earlier in the night Mr Turnbull was seated alongside Lachlan and Sarah Murdoch, James Packer, Kerry Stokes and then NSW premier Mike Baird at the event.
