Victorian Liberal party loyal to leader

The Victorian Liberal Party is standing behind its embattled leader Matthew Guy despite any lingering indigestion over the seafood soiree dubbed "lobster with a mobster".

The alternative premier on Tuesday said his party continued to back him after the lavish April dinner at the Lobster Cave also attended by alleged mafia boss Tony Madafferi.

"I think my party's strength behind me answers that question," he told reporters when asked about his future as leader.
