A new trope has emerged in the Australian media: "Something something, out of touch, post-something, post-something, Trump, Brexit, Hanson."

The most confronting example I’ve seen to date was back in November when the headline editors at The Guardian asked “First Brexit, now Trump: can Australia be spared a similar voter backlash?” Spared? And while Lenore Taylor provided one of the more readable takes in this new genre, she was unable to shake the self-doubt from such a stultifying headline.
