Australians Are Putting Out Their Onions For Prime Minister Tony Abbott

    Doin' it for the PM.

    Australians on Twitter have reacted to news that Malcolm Turnbull will challenge Tony Abbott for the leadership of the Liberal party by starting the hashtag #PutOutYourOnions.

    Goodbye, Tone. #putoutyouronions #libspill #auspol

    Abbott famously chomped into a whole, raw unpeeled onion during a media appearance in March.

    While Abbott's future in politics has not yet been decided, he can for the moment find solace in the fact that the people are thinking of him.

    So long, @tonyabbottmhr #putoutyouronions

    So, go on.


    @neil_saints @SamanthaC77 Sounds like he's as good as gone #putoutyouronions
