FWIW, there is an article on the AP news page with some speculation about the younger sister being the heir apparent / presumptive. Meh, South Korea might be on the money, maybe he has simply gone into self-isolation waiting for his countrymen to build up some herd immunity (?).

Sorry but the link does not seem to work but you can goggle "NKorea silence on Kim's health raises succession speculation" to find any number of newspapers carrying the AP article.

Yes, too true.

I wondered why his sister had started making appearances all of a sudden. The talk is that he has ticker problems. He has only one daughter and she is seven but he does have an older brother and two sisters. Would the dynasty be able to continue?

Talk about the virus being THE black swan event ... I reckon the sudden disintegration of the North Korean state might even top that.

And to that you could add something else that's a big political worry - the burgeoning income inequality and its various spin-off effects

What Went Wrong With Australian Politics?

Viewed from afar, Australia is the envy of the world with its abundant resources and an economy that’s gone 27 years without a recession. But scratch beneath the surface and it’s a different story. An era of stability and economic reform has been replaced by a revolving door of leadership and politics trumping policy. The nation is sliding in international rankings for innovation and education, leaving it struggling for economic momentum even as global growth picks up.

I am not sure why you reckon that JB is not PM material.
I have not seen anyone else who is, on either side.
The problem was never who was the leader, the problem was the inability to get the various egos to work together and sell a coherent message to the electorate.
JB was not seen as a member of either the progressives or the conservatives, she was a loyal member of the liberal party.
And what was her reward?
Chucked out in the first ballot.
The coalition will be demolished next election.
Julie Bishop may have been able to limit the damage.

Mull,

I love Julie Bishop also.
I have had the pleasure of meeting her and hearing her speak at informal Liberal Party meetings.
She is a class act but sadly not PM material.
Liberals will get a female PM soon enough but not Julie.
Back in the day, the person who impressed me most at the Lib Conference was Abbott, who duly got elected as PM some time later and got Julie as his Deputy.
So the Party has done the right thing by her. Why make somebody leader just to fill some artificial quota?? Do it on merit.
Sadly I think the best PM - a guy - is still sitting in the back benches. Methinks some of the cabinet ministers sense the competition and are deliberately keeping him down.
Will be interesting to see if Morrison picks him.

USA! It’s been real, mate.
