They are starting to gang up on you Malcolm. The normal suspects: Peta Credlin, Andrew Bolt, Jeff Kennett.
Bolt has very cleverly taken to grilling his guests on the achievements of Malcolm Turnbull’s government.
Here’s today’s headlines from The Age: Stumped: Jeff Kennett also fails to name a Turnbull government achievement
This follows a similar recent failure on Peta Credlin’s part.
The idea of your government as a do-nothing government is turning out to be your Achilles heel. You’re a classical scholar so you understand the idea of an Achilles heel.

And try not to turn your Achilles heel into an Achilles leg.
