#BREAKING ABC reporters have been unable to locate the whereabouts of Opposition Leader, Bill Shorten MP, following the announcement of Liberal Party leaderships challenge.

Moments ago, Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull announced to the world that he was challenging Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s role as leader of Liberal Party, an announcement that many feel has crippled Shorten’s chances of ever doing so himself.

ABC Reporter Eliza Borrello was first on the scene.

“It looks like Mr Shorten has taken this news quite poorly,”

“There is a fist-shaped hole in his laptop screen and just about every piece of furniture has been smashed against his bookshelves,”

“There is blood smeared across the walls which would suggest he has lacerated his hands in the process,”

Mr Shorten was not at the scene, but ABC reporter have received word from ALP staffers that he is unable to give comment at this time.

The Betoota Advocate will continue to seek comment from Mr Shorten. However this may prove difficult as we were denied entry to the Canberra Press Gallery during the last #LibSpill.
