iSentia index: a big week in international news puts Bishop on top

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop has dominated news coverage, despite the political struggles back in Australia.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop spent most of the week in Kiev and Amsterdam, leading coverage across radio and television as the chaos surrounding the MH17 crash site continued, with international police still unable to get to the site as Ukrainian government forces push Russian separatists into a smaller and smaller corner. Bishop has received widespread praise for her handling of the issue, with former Howard government minister and now ubiquitous pundit Peter Reith opining in Fairfax outlets that she should be the next Liberal PM. Some commentators on social media, remembering her period as shadow treasurer, chose to disagree.

    Julie Bishop will be Australia’s next PM when the LNP finally dump Abbott. My prediction.
