Bill Shorten lines up Julie Bishop for diplomatic post
Tuesday, 29 January 2019
Julie Bishop’s chances of a plum diplomatic post overseas — if and when she quits Federal politics — have improved, courtesy of one of her most bitter rivals.
Opposition Leader Bill Shorten said yesterday he would consider current and former senior Liberal MPs when filling prominent roles if he were to become prime minister.
Ms Bishop has been mooted as a candidate for an overseas role post-politics as rumours about her future beyond this year’s election have swirled.

Made for each other.
