Jugglers and Acrobats

All eyes were on Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull this year as he showed the skills of juggler, acrobat and even contortionist to manage the factions and pressure groups across his party. Eliciting our sympathy, Jon Kudelka’s mid-year cartoon captures the fraught position of the major parties’ leaders with their respective ‘monkey’s of leaders past’ on their backs. Our Prime Minister was not alone in requiring major people-management skills.
