Dr Mumbo

Meet your new deputy PM, courtesy of The Daily Telegraph

It’s hard to keep up with who’s in charge in the post-Howard era, something Dr Mumbo and The Daily Telegraph know all too well.

This week alone we’ve had Malcom Turnbull (Prime Minister), Peter Dutton (almost Prime Minister), Julie Bishop (wannabe Prime Minister) and ScoMo (new Prime Minister).

But what of the deputy PM?

It used to be Barnaby Joyce, Dr Mumbo recalls.

Now, however, The Tele says it is Josh Frydenberg.

Not quite.

Frydenberg may be deputy leader of the Liberal Party (for now), but he is not deputy Prime Minister.

That remains the title on the business card of Michael McCormack, leader of the National Party – the ‘NP’ in the ‘LNP Coalition’.

Still, Dr Mumbo can’t wait to meet Frydenberg, as promised by the folks at The Tele.
