The Price of Silence

WITH a federal election likely to be called this week, the latest Newspoll again shows a seemingly unassailable Labor lead (54-46 2PP). More interesting is this graphical history of Scott Morrison’s loss of authority and credibility:

The decline tracks perfectly the imposition of martial ‘law’ by the states – about which the PM had nothing to say. He thought it was clever to play ‘If only the Führer knew.’ Bad call.

    I think ScoMo is going to learn that constantly pandering to the left/woke crowd and state government authoritarianism, along with his shameless lack of principles will be his humiliating undoing.
    I didn’t think I could possibly despise a “conservative” leader more than Turnbull, but Morrison has well and truly proved me wrong.
    At least Turnbull’s ego wouldn’t have permitted him to fold up like a concertina in the face of premiers.

  2. Entropy says:

    Lee, I think I would still choose Morrison over lord Wentworth. And not in a small way.

    Although in fact the choice is actually Morrison or Albanese.

    depressing, yet true. And I think Morrison is still ahead on that basis.

  3. Gary says:

    Yet again the choice we face will be bad or worse. I’m in a safe Labor seat so my vote has never made a difference in the lower house. I hope enough sensible people will be voted into the senate to minimise the damage either of the major parties will try to inflict upon the country.

  4. Buccaneer says:

    Morrison needs to go, Albanese is worse. A person who pretends to be authentic while disowning everything he’s ever stood for. I note no one is rushing to interview Carmel Tebutt as to why she left him.

  5. Petros says:

    Morrison said there were no mandates. Lying scumbag.

    She really disappeared, didn’t she?

    Unlike the media rush to interview Hewson’s ex-wife when he was running against Keating.

    Hewson was a fool, but the “unbiased” media are worse.

  8. Buccaneer says:

    A work colleague met Hewson once, she came to work saying what a wonderful man he was. A few days later it seems he inappropriately propositioned her and she no longer had such nice things to say. Obviously, this is not the first time the Australian public has had to work out which shit sandwich might be more appetising.

  9. Buccaneer says:

    It’s also a timely reminder, that if Keating can get re-elected, anything can happen.

  10. Jay says:

    Time to throw them out. At heart they’re no different from the Greens. Most are closet Greens. For average people it’s a case of: ‘if Morrison doesn’t believe in fighting culture wars, then what good is he?’ Economically all the big parties spend like drunken sailors so might as well preference Labor. At least they’re not so interested in the property developer set and driving up house prices to edge out traditional working Australians.
