The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - THE SAUCE -

IN the dy­ing days of the Turn­bull gov­ern­ment you could have been con­fused for think­ing the Prime Min­is­ter had hired a new ad­viser.

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.
