Opposition leader Anthony Albanese is “no Bob Hawke,” according to Sky News host Rowan Dean.
Mr Albanese posted a photo to Twitter of himself standing with former Labor Prime Minister Bob Hawke, which was captioned: ‘Hawkey would have been 92 today. Happy Birthday to the great man.’
According to Mr Dean, this was “Albo’s none-too-subtle way of saying ‘I am the rightful heir to Bob Hawke, when you think of Bob Hawke, think of me’”.
“But there’s always a problem when you compare yourself to your heroes and that is, well, you invite people to compare you to their heroes.
“And unfortunately, in Albo’s case, I’m not sure that comparing himself to Bob Hawke is really such a great idea.”
