Malcolm Turnbull is set to make a major reshuffle of his shadow ministry as he prepares for the Long March to unseat Chairman Rudd in 2010.
He has miles to go before he sleeps. And promises to keep.
Promises to a group of Right leaning Liberals who had previously seen Malcolm as the Great Satan but who came to think that the ear-ring wearer former lefty Dr Brendan Nelson wasn’t much better and looked around for a better deal.
One beneficiary is expected to be the federal MP for Indi Sophie Mirabella who had previously been overlooked for the front-bench.
The one-time monarchist crusader Sophie Mirabella surprised some supporters with rumours that she might have voted with her former Republican nemesis Malcolm Turnbull in the leadership ballot.
