Liam Bartlett: Can you win seats Anthony, here in the West, can you win key seats like Pearce, can you take that off Christian Porter for example?
Anthony Albanese: I’m not sure that he’ll be a candidate to be honest, I’ll be surprised if he is …

Anthony Albanese: Yeah well he said he’ll sue the ABC too … We’ll wait and see what happens there.
