Brand-spankin’ new WA Liberal leader Zak Kirkup has only been in the job a couple of days after he was elected unopposed to lead the opposition following Liza Harvey’s resignation.

At 33, Kirkup is WA’s youngest opposition leader in more than a century, and The Bunch were keen as to get to know him a bit better.

Here are our hot takes…

Best concert you’ve ever been to?

“I really liked Elton John,” he said. “And also Kanye West when he was here, he was really good.”

If you could only have four ingredients on a pizza?

“I really like anchovies, don’t judge me too harshly… and oh gosh, I mean, I really like just a Margherita pizza, so what’s that, basil, tomato, cheese… and I’d add anchovies.”


Beach or bush?

I really like the bush, I like walking or running through trails.”

Dog or cat?

“Dogs,” he said without skipping a beat. “I really like Golden Retrievers, there’s a really good Golden Retriever Instagram account from Mandurah… fantastic!”


First car you owned?

“Ohh mate, it was a VT Series 2 Commodore, in maroon red… it was very fitting for Midland.”

Last TV series you binged?

“The Crown! I really enjoyed that, beautifully shot.”
