West Aussies rally round McGowan in Dutton spat

It seems plenty of West Australians are on board with Premier Mark McGowan, who believes the Liberal Party is way off the mark if it installs the outgoing Minister for Defence Peter Dutton as leader of the ailing party.

Dutton is a short-priced favourite to assume the mantle of Liberal leader after their weekend election horror show, which saw them lose a poll for the first time since Labor formed a minority government in 2010.

Dutton, 51, has said he will put his name forward to take charge of the party and, with former Treasurer Josh Frydenberg losing his seat of Kooyong, he would be a clear favourite to get the job.

But the likely appointment of Dutton has drawn the ire of Mr McGowan, who launched an extraordinary attack on the Queenslander on Monday morning.
