Malcolm for PM? Former Liberal NSW MP and former Liberal Party treasurer and founder of the Millennium Forum Michael Yabsley is spruiking his friend Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull as the guest speaker at his Wombat Hollow Forum next month, and the write-up seems to hint that leadership chatter is not at all put to bed:

“Rarely if ever have the life and times of an Australian citizen been so closely scrutinised and so keenly anticipated as that of Malcolm Turnbull.

From scholar to journalist to barrister to businessman to parliamentarian and political leader, the eyes of the nation have been on Malcolm Turnbull for a generation.

All the signs are that the level of scrutiny and anticipation are about to go into overdrive again.”

Wombat Hollow, a property in the Southern Highlands, is also known for Yabsley’s bespoke lamps, which he builds himself. Maybe he’s hoping Turnbull will see the light?
