Sportsbet has opened betting on who leaked Malcolm Turnbull’s Mid-Winter Ball speech. Tony Abbott supporter Peta Credlin leads the betting as suspect number one.
The accused, Bill Shorten, is on the fourth line of betting.
A witch-hunt is underway in Canberra to find out who stepped over the line and leaked Malcolm Turnbull’s speech at the Mid-Winter Ball.
There’s no doubt lots of people in attendance who would be willing to see the PM squirm but online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has issued the odds for punters to have their say on who they think is the culprit.
CANBERRA’S MOST WANTED
Peta Credlin – Odds $3.50 (Favourite)
Peta is no fan of Malcolm and is never too shy to let that be known. As Tony Abbott’s No.1 supporter, the leak would make sense to embarrass the PM. Abbott was also a no show at the event which raises even more suspicion!
Jacqui Lambie – Odds $4.00
Jacqui is quite new to the political game and so could quite easily throw the ‘off the record’ ethos out the window. She’s always willing to ruffle a few feathers so cannot be ruled out.
Pauline Hanson – Odds $4.00
Bill Shorten – Odds $6.00
There would be obvious political gain for Bill and some fingers have already been pointed in the opposition leaders direction, but it is just a bit too obvious?
Malcolm Turnbull – Odds $7.00
In a twist that would sit nicely in any episode of House of Cards, what if the PM leaked it himself in an attempt to prove he’s no pushover in regards to dealing with Trump? A bit of a stretch but not totally ruled out!
“There’s plenty of suspects in the whodunnit of the year, in fact it would make a great Cluedo edition. ‘It was the former Chief of Staff, in the ballroom, with an iPhone’’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Chief Political Detective Will Byrne.
