A nice bipartisan touch to see both the PM and the Deputy PM at the footy on Saturday both sporting the scarf of their favoured side. Not much joy this time for the boy from Brizzy as his Bears got walloped and a politely restrained show of exuberance by the girl from Adelaide who adopted the winning Western Bulldogs when she joined the ambulance chasers at Slater & Gordon years ago when the firm’s senior partner was the club chairman.
I didn’t notice Malcolm Turnbull’s face in the crowd at any of the weekend finals games. Probably the poor fellow feels obliged to follow the Eastern Suburbs rugby league team who finished the year bottom of the ladder. Is that an omen?
