The Liar from the Shire has really outdone himself lately.
I didn’t expect any better from the man who dubbed himself ScoMo and then employed a personal photographer to change his image from a persecutor of refugees and social service recipients to a chicken coop building, cap and footie scarf wearing, beer swilling, God worshipping, netball dad who cooks a mean strawberry curry on the barbie.
But the personal photographer approach didn’t work so well when Morrison went up to (WARNING) “put his arm around” Emmanuel Macron. ScoMo’s attempt at a selfie backfired so, in typical fashion, he accused the press of trying to get selfies with the French president thereby giving Macron a platform to flex his muscles for a domestic audience. Scott has this unfortunate tendency to accuse everyone else of what he himself is doing.
ScoMo had done nothing wrong. Leak a private leader-to-leader text to the Murdoch press to prove it.
“Claims were made and claims were refuted,” parroted a conga line of government MPs, except all that was proven was that Macron didn’t know the sub deal was off and Scotty didn’t want to show us his response.
Macron has sledged Australia says an indignant FauxMo.
Hang on, says everyone. He specifically sledged YOU.
Scotty is also getting very irate with everybody pointing out his blatant backflip on electric vehicles but I think the lie that got me truly guffawing was his first high viz hard hat outing after getting home at the Westconnex tunnel.
When I met with His Royal Highness Prince Charles, at Glasgow, one of the things he raised was the great urban projects that have been done here in partnership with the New South Wales government, and made particular mention of the work that both premier Perrottet has been doing and Rob Stokes was doing as well, and I think that’s a great recognition of what is happening here in New South Wales and in particular in Sydney.
And so congratulations, Dom.
Aside from the name-dropping and the extremely unlikely possibility that Prince Charles would know the name of the new premier and roads minister of NSW and choose the “Last Chance Saloon” to discuss them with ScoMo, this was the same day that it was announced that Sydney’s new inner-west light-rail will be shut down for 18 months due to significant cracks in all 12 trams.
The NSW government bought trains that don’t fit the tracks, ferries that can’t fit under bridges or operate at night, and an entire fleet of trams that simply don’t work.
But hey, congrats from the Prince of Wales.
I also object to the glossy brochure misnomered “The Australian Way”. Since when has it been the Australian way to do nothing, to take credit for the work of others, to leave the heavy lifting to someone else, to put our prosperity in front of the futures of our children.
‘Can do’ capitalism, technology not taxes – these are the slogans of a government hamstrung by its own inadequacy, its fear of offending its puppet masters, and a complete lack of leadership.
All pamphlet and no policy, no care taken and no responsibility accepted, fiddle the numbers and pretend you’ve made progress, be indignant whenever your lies are exposed, and ALWAYS blame others – that’s the Morrison Way.
