Rumours have been abound about foreign minister Julie Bishop’s visible dissatisfaction with treasurer Joe Hockey’s speech in parliament on Monday, which mentioned the expenditure review committee. Bishop rolled her eyes and put her hand to her forehead during the speech.

This happened as a recent leak to the Australian suggested that the foreign aid budget would be slashed in the upcoming budget, which the Coalition government has already taken $11 billion dollars from.

Bishop has stated that she understood that no cuts would be made to her portfolio, and said that she is ‘pleased that there will be no uncertainty surrounding that.’ Senior ministers have brushed aside the eye roll and speculation surrounding it, calling it ‘over analyzed.’
