Was arguably Australia’s most astute political cartoonist dropping a hint in his offering in last weekend’s Sydney Morning Herald?

Does Alan Moir know of leadership rumblings in the federal Liberal Party and is the Father of our Nation and much loved wartime leader Scott Morrison in danger of being toppled?

Does Moir know something that the hardheaded political scribes in the Canberra bubble don’t?
