If you asked me what has happened politically in Australia for the past one week......I would have a hard time trying to recall anything at all.
Somewhere at the back of my mind I am aware that the new Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, is reaching out to states across Australia, no matter what their political affiliation, to start negotiations on how Federal funds could be put to work with State funds to kick start major infrastructure works that has been languishing because of financial constrains due to the inability of a state government under Labor to work with a Federal government that is
under the Liberal/National coalition.
And then sometime last week I did read that Lucy Turnbull, the wife of the Prime Minister will resign as deputy chairperson of a ferry operator to avoid a "conflict of interest"
Lucy Turnbull to quit SeaLink board to avoid conflict of interest
Lucy Turnbull will resign as deputy chairman of ferry operator SeaLink Travel Group after flagging the move following her husband’s ascent to the prime ministership. SeaLink announced Ms Turnbull will not seek re-election to the board at the group’s annual general meeting next week. She had said after Malcolm Turnbull ousted Tony Abbott last month that she would review her various corporate roles to avoid any potential conflicts of interest.
And yes, she does not want to be known as First Lady.
Why Lucy Turnbull doesn't want to be called First Lady
The Prime Minister's wife, Lucy Turnbull, says First Lady sounds too official for her.
