Dr Farmer thinks that Malcolm Turnbull is still looking quite crook — or at least old and very tired. He is hardly thriving on the pressure and why he jetted off to London to give a speech during this short parliamentary recess is beyond me.
A day or two on a northern beach pretending to be developing some major policy initiative would have done him more good. Have a look at a replay of his performance last night on Lateline and judge for yourself.
There is something essentially negative about everything the man now says and grumpy old men are rarely popular as Dr Farmer well knows.
