As we gather for the Melbourne Cup, know that there is at least one person more likely to be fiddling with his phone rather than glued to the TV. And that man just happens to be our Prime Minister.
Breaking with tradition, Malcolm Turnbull has failed to pick a winner for the big race, even when pressed by journalists several times today and yesterday, BuzzFeed reports.
When asked who he’s got his eye on, the PM has politely declined to answer. Eventually, a spokesperson for his office told the media the Prime Minister is simply not interested in horse racing, and not that keen on gambling either.
Last year, then Prime Minister Tony Abbott publicly backed the horse Signoff, however he was off the mark.
Mr Turnbull has deigned to partake in the office sweep, however, posting this picture to Twitter this morning.
