Don’t you, forget about me. Robert Menzies had his “forgotten people”, the middle class who he pitched the Liberal Party to, but it looks like Malcolm Turnbull has his own set of “forgotten people” to deal with. Yesteray’sWentworth Courier, the local paper for the new PM’s electorate, called on Turnbull “Don’t forget about us”. Is that really a concern? Wentworth is one of the richest electorates in the country — something tells us the people of Vaucluse, Woollahra and Double Bay do not need to worry about being forgotten by a Liberal government.
