Staff in the PM’s office were bemused that Malcolm Turnbull’s s Singapore-based son Alex was increasingly being included in policy discussions, with one comparing Donald Trump’s hiring of his son-in-law Jared Kushner.
While Alex’s involvement seemed to be a little more ad hoc, Team Turnbull insists none of the information shared with Alex in group texts was classified, but it did leaving them wondering what an expat investment banker could add to the domestic debate. THE Sydney Roosters have a new fair weather fan. The Liberal candidate for Wentworth Dave Sharma has jumped aboard the red, white and blue bandwagon just in time for today’s grand final and a by-election. The 42-year-old political aspirant went to his first Chooks match at last weekend’s semi-final and, not surprisingly, he’s now backing them in for the premiership. While Sharma was pictured wearing the tricolour scarf with pride alongside club great Anthony Minichiello, his Twitter account shows he also follows Parramatta Eels. But Sharma’s campaign camp assured The Sauce he has never supported a league team until last week, least of all the Eels. Truth be told, the father-ofthree prefers watching the Waratahs. He should fit into the eastern suburbs nicely.
Minichiello and Sharma.
