PM's and POTUS's


(I realise that the above heading doesn't work because POTUS's as an abbreviation reads President of the United Stateses but turn a blind eye to that).

Having recently posted a pic of Oz PM Billy McMahon meeting Richard Nixon, with wife Sonia in THAT dress, here are some more pics of OZ PM’s meeting their US counterparts . . .
