LETTER: Turnbull holds a gun to the head of senators

IT IS of little wonder why last week's federal voting reforms were so important to Malcolm Turnbull.

He now has a gun to the heads of the independent and micro party Senators demanding they get behind him on his ABCC legislation or quite simply lose your job.

Funny how his argument for reintroducing these laws are to rid work sites of corruption and bullying tactics.

Looks a little hypocritical to me.

With these sneaky tactics it's of little wonder Tony Abbott found himself out of the top job.
