My question is to the Prime Minister. On 21 separate occasions since he became Prime Minister he's failed to answer why Malcolm Turnbull isn't the Prime Minister of Australia. Given that he's had almost four weeks to work on his answer—and he's now been asked the question 21 times—I ask again: why isn't Malcolm Turnbull the Prime Minister of Australia?

Members on my left. The member for Wills will cease interjecting. He's looking at me while he interjects.

I refer the member to my earlier answers on this matter. I will simply say that he's had five years and he can't convince anyone that he should be the Prime Minister.
