Keith Tremain always believed that when times got tough, you could count on your mates.

After suffering two strokes, a heart attack, and the loss of his wife, the 81-year-old is now bracing for a battle with construction giant Lendlease, which wants to demolish the entire wing of the Sydney retirement village he lives in, because it isn’t profitable enough.

If it goes ahead, Keith and 50 other retirees face being split up, as they come under pressure to leave their homes.

So Keith decided to call on an old mate – Tony Abbott, the former prime minister.
