Bob Hawke Cartoon
Former Prime Minister, Bob Hawke was seen what he does best at the third test between Australia and Pakistan at the SCG this week – skolling a cold beer.
Here is Bob Hawke in all his glory, sporting the jacket he made famous in the America’s Cup where he announced “Any boss who sacks a worker for not turning up today is a bum”.
He is holding the famous “yard of ale” glass with which he set a world record for the amount of beer skolled in 11 seconds at Oxford University.
