Last week a disgruntled LNP member from Peter Dutton’s seat of Dickson wrote to Crikey venting their spleen at Dutton’s decision to abandon the seat for Margaret May’s seat of McPherson. We’ve reproduced most of their comments below.

It’s fair to say that there are some members in Dutton’s electorate deeply unhappy at his abandonment of them following a redistribution that turned his wafer-thin, monsieur, margin into a notional Labor seat. But the contrary view, put by senior Liberals in the seat, is that while members wish he was staying, and that it could have been handled better given the impression that Dickson has been abandoned, no one begrudges Dutton moving seats or the party for trying to keep him in Parliament.
