The author reflects on the criticism on the wealth of Malcolm Turnball, Australian politician and Leader of the Opposition in the Australian Parliament in Australia. According to the author, Infrastructure Minister Anthony Albanese mocked the new opposition leader because of his affluence which comes with privilege. The author believes that Turnball has to prove himself that he is not the rich man people are thinking of.
