F might fit the Bill for future PM
Any student receiving a B-plus would immediately check with others to compare results and would probably be mollified to find that nobody else in the class did better.
The assessment of Malcolm Turnbull’s performance (“Marking Malcolm”, 16/9) could be quite commendable, considering that Tony Abbott, Bob Hawke and Paul Keating would get a B, Kevin Rudd a C and Julia Gillard a D and that the only prime minister in the past 30 years to get a higher rating, John Howard, would definitely rate an A.
Idle speculation, perhaps, but my prediction for Bill Shorten would be F.
