“THE labels arrogant, aloof, condescending, impetuous, demanding, autocratic, slippery, irascible, rude, intemperate, foul-mouthed and impatient have all been attached to Malcolm Turnbull. You should hear what the Opposition Leader’s enemies say about him.”

Paul Daley  on Malcolm Turnbull. Richard Ackland describes Turnbull as both charming and lethal:

“One was never quite sure what Turnbull was. The former chief justice Sir Anthony Mason described him as a “master of professional disguise”.

One minute a jingle writer, then a barrister, next minute a solicitor, then a financial adviser, now a politician. Alternately charming, then lethal.

Catch him if you can.”
