Scott Morrison and Dominic Perrottet (Image: AAP/Mick Tsikas)

Is Dominic Perrottet good or bad for Scott Morrison? Truth is, no one knows, despite the insider guff from press gallery drones about their mutual respect blah blah.

Perrottet is a strong contrast to Gladys Berejiklian, yet another white, socially reactionary male with a strong, almost cultish, religious background -- just like Morrison. Something of a fail on the product differentiation score; the Liberal Party is a broad church -- with the emphasis on church.

Perrottet also presided over a much bigger scandal than Berejiklian in terms of money and lives affected. The icare debacle saw billions of dollars lost and thousands of workers underpaid amid serious conflicts of interest.
