Malcolm Turnbull seems to be doing everything he can to show the Australian people he’s just a regular guy – a man of the people who wears sensible swimwear and eats his onions cooked.
Nine News political reporter Charles Croucher tweeted this cheeky snap of the prime minister leaving an interview at 3AW to make his way to State Parliament via the 11 Tram at about 9.15 this morning.
