Newman threatened with expulsion from the LNP

Former Queensland premier Campbell Newman and retired National Senate leader Ron Boswell have been reprimanded by the Liberal National Party, and there are moves for them to be expelled.

The push comes after the pair criticised the party’s dismal state election campaign.

Newman received a warning letter indicating there were complaints against him.

The former premier speaks with Chris Kenny to give his response.

“I’ll be a little guarded in my comments.

“They believe my role as a political commentator is inconsistent with membership of the LNP.

“They move on to suggest that I resign.

“Well Chris, I won’t be resigning.

“I want to remain a member of the LNP.”
