John Keane joins the China Radio International commenting on Tony Abbott Leadership Spill
Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has survived a party confidence vote on his leadership.

The test to the Abbott leadership came after a series of policy mis-steps by Mr Abbott that saw his popularity tumble.
