Awkward! Shorten Accidentally Likes Turnbull’s Instagram Photo From A Year Ago

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten was today left red-faced after accidentally liking one of Malcolm Turnbull’s Instagram photos from more than a year ago.

Mr Shorten had been stalking through Mr Turnbull’s old photos on Instagram when he inadvertently double-tapped an image of the Prime Minister at the beach, posted in early 2015.

Realising his mistake, the Member for Maribyrnong quickly unliked the photo. Mr Turnbull received a notification anyway.

Sources close to the Labor leader say Mr Shorten is now considering retiring from politics, to avoid the awkwardness of seeing Mr Turnbull when Parliament resumes.
