After Donald Trump’s stunning election victory, some international leaders were falling over themselves to make contact with the great man.
Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was one of the first.
So how did Turnbull pull off this diplomatic coup?
He got Australian golf legend Greg Norman to him put through to the President-elect.
Seems that Greg has got Donald’s direct phone number.
Seems that Australian Ambassador to the US, Joe Hockey, does not.
So what are we paying Joe Hockey for?
It would seem that his list of diplomatic achievement is likely to rival that of the list of his achievement as Treasurer, Minister for Human Services and Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations.
