Scott Morrison told radio host Alan Jones the Coalition would not resort to a “fear campaign” but would run a “truth campaign”.
Apparently, joining the rest of the world in the uptake of electric vehicles and emissions standards is a “war on the weekend”.
A screeching Michaelia Cash, with neck chords fully distended and flanked by a smirking ScoMo and a dumbly nodding Lucy Wicks, vowed “We are going to stand by our tradies and we are going to save their utes.”
The performance was reminiscent of Michael “Elvis” McCormack who warned that a 45% emissions reduction target will mean we can “forget night footy, forget night cricket.”
Oh, and it will “cost Australians at least $9000 a year.”
Then we had the overblown and dishonest response to a bill allowing sick refugees on Manus and Nauru to get specialist medical attention.
“It is going to see hundreds of people coming here quickly, it will be quite confronting and that’s the reality of the bill that they passed in the parliament,” Mr Dutton said.
Linda Reynolds told us the passage of the bill made her “physically ill” and would “come at the cost of the lives of others”.
We would be impotent in stopping all the “murderers, rapists and pedophiles” from invading our shores.
Whyalla wipeout, $100 lamb roasts – these people have form in hysterical hyperbole.
The marriage equality debate wasn’t about human rights according to Tony Abbott – it was about “religious freedom, freedom of speech and political correctness”. A florist he said “could lose her business because of her beliefs”. All of a sudden, “traditional marriages would mean nothing”.
And the Safe Schools program wasn’t about respectful relationships and anti-bullying – it was about “gender whispering” and “sexualising our kids”.
The idea that Morrison will run a “truth campaign” is laughable. He doesn’t understand the meaning of the word.
