Prime Minister Sits Down and Drinks Beers With Editors of Satire Paper

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull gave his most casual interview ever, after a sitting down with satire publication Betoota Advocate over beers in an inner-east Sydney pub.

“You pick-up things that the mainstream media completely overlook,” Turnbull told the publication’s editors Clancy Overell and Errol Parker, citing satirical articles about his golfing habits.

During the sit-down, Turnbull mentioned the financial state of the media, the WA election, the passing of Australian satirist Bill Leak, Barnaby Joyce, kayaking, NRL and his sporting prowess, and his experiences with pubs and music in Sydney.

Throughout their time, the editors took a number of cheeky swipes at Liberal policy and tried to frame Turnbull in a communist conspiracy. They also suggested Turnbull list Kirribilli House on Airbnb. Credit: Facebook/Beetoota Advocate via Storyful
