Bishop mys­tery

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Letters -

The last thing Scott Mor­ri­son wants is in­sta­bil­ity in his gov­ern­ment’s ranks.

Then why didn’t Julie Bishop ac­cept his of­fer to re­main as For­eign Af­fairs Min­is­ter, one of the most se­nior min­is­ter roles in gov­ern­ment? That was some­thing that she ex­celled in un­der a Turn­bull gov­ern­ment.

Is it be­cause she didn’t get the sup­port of her party to be­come the LNP’s first fe­male prime min­is­ter, or to re­main as the deputy leader af­ter 11 years in the role?

And why did she speak out in the me­dia about ap­palling be­hav­iour in the LNP when she had 11 years to elim­i­nate it and call out the cul­prits in the party?
