"We stood shoulder to shoulder, as we always have", Turnbull said, adding that he and May had paid tribute to the police and other emergency personnel during a visit earlier Monday to London's Borough Market, the site of a deadly terrorist attack last month.

Queensland marginal seat holder Michelle Landry, who previous year described the Turnbull Government's performance as "wishy-washy", has become the first Coalition MP to publicly urge Mr Abbott to take the highly coveted position in London.

The Liberal party has been embroiled in scandal in recent months amid rising tensions between conservative and moderate ministers.

Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg, a senior member of the Cabinet, warned on July 6 that opposition leader Bill Shorten was "the one who's benefiting most, unfortunately, from Tony Abbott's constant interventions".

He said it was true Sir Robert had "expressly distinguished liberalism from conservatives".

According to reports, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull may offer his in-party adversary the plum job to tease the former PM away from parliament in an effort to put an end to the continued undermining of his own authority.

"By fighting terrorism - with proportionate means - we are defending liberal values", he will say.

"The most vehement contemporary claimants are on the party's right wing".

"I'm at a loss to explain why Malcolm would give that speech, unless he is just trying to further alienate the so-called conservatives from the party", he said.

But Mr Kennett said he was so disillusioned about the state of the party under Mr Turnbull that he wanted to drink whisky before 9am.

"What it's sent is a very strong message to conservatives in Australia [that] you're no longer welcome within the party of Menzies", Mr Bernardi told 7.30.

There are no two nations in the world that trust each other more than the United Kingdom and Australia, he said.

'The sensible centre was the place to be.

Former NSW premier Nick Greiner, now federal president of the Liberal Party, on Tuesday criticised Mr Abbott's policy vision for the party.

"My view is the public expects governments to govern", he said.

"Mr Turnbull is having an identity crisis, debating whether he is a Liberal or a conservative. What everyone knows is this a government lacking leadership", he said.
