Tips and rumours

Katter contains multitudes ... Winston Peters vs Julie Bishop ... Rudd gives his opinion (again) ...

From the Crikey grapevine, the latest tips and rumours …

Bishop wedged by Kiwi duo. Much ink has been spilled regarding the presumptive awkwardness between Foreign Minister Julie Bishop and incoming NZ Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, the leader of the party Bishop said she'd not be able to trust if they were elected. Now she has another layer to confront -- the world's second-greatest "own-name-tweeter", Winston Peters is tipped to become New Zealand's new foreign minister (his second tilt at the role). Peters is an unpredictable contrarian, a berater of journalists and other politicians and, let it not be forgotten (he certainly isn't about to) the whole reason that Bishop has to deal with this shifty New Zealand Labour government in the first place. Ms Tips joyfully awaits their first press conference together.

    Re: Bob Katter…my politics are almost entirely opposite to Bob’s take. However, I forgive him many things, because he is a self confessed long term member of the CFMEU!!!!!
    There is still hope!
