Foreign Minister Julie Bishop was put on the spot when a New Zealand journalist questioned the leadership tension gripping the Liberal Party.
That poor journo was on the receiving end of one helluva glare that looked a little something like this:
The journalist asked if Bishop would stand against Malcolm Turnbull in the event of a successful motion for a leadership spill. To which the Australian foreign minister replied with a glare and: “That’s your idea of an easy question?”.
“These are hypothetical questions and this is all based on speculation and rumour. I’ve not seen any source attributed to any particular member or minister. So it’s hypothetical, it’s speculation, I don’t intend to add to it. There was a motion for a leadership spill. It did not succeed.”
The history of the ballbusting Julie Bishop death glare
Julie Bishop is well known for her tendency to communicate and answer in emojis, and is just as famous for her wide-eyed glares.
The “Oh no you didn’t”
The “Challenge me, I dare you”
The “Seriously… if you come any closer…”
The “I’m going to warn you one last time”
