Liberal cabinet minister Josh Frydenberg and Labor rising star Ed Husic have long had each other’s backs.
When Husic was criticised for swearing his oath of office on the Koran, Frydenberg went on radio to defend him. A few years later, it was Husic’s turn. When others in his party suggested Frydenberg had questions to answer regarding his citizenship, Husic – publicly – told them to pull their heads in.
Both men know a bit about not fitting in.
