    Credit where credit is due, this is one of the very few decent or good things Morrison has done in the last 3-4 years.

  2. Lee says:

    When are Albo and Benny going to Israel to show their support?

    Silly question, I know.

  3. Christine says:

    Yes, I give him credit also

  4. C.L. says:

    Indeed, Lee and Christine. Well done, ScoMo.

    At the same time, this is a total disgrace. No reflection on Morrison at all but we’re sending an ex-PM from the opposition party to affirm solidarity with our ally, Israel, in one of its darkest hours?

    The Israelis will not forget this cowardice.

  5. Ed Case says:

    What’s the story, has the Libera Party asked Scotty to go, or has he gone on his own bat?
    He was a pretty good P.M., certainly the best since Howard, perhaps he’s not finished yet and the writing is on the wall for Dutton?

    I’m one of Morrison’s biggest critics however on Israel, he is genuine. The Friday after the pogrom, 13 October 2023, Scott Morrison and his wife Jenny attended a Friday night Kabbalat Shabbat service at an Orthodox synagogue here in Bondi. Morrison had contacted the rabbi and asked if they could attend.

    Fact 1: On Israel and the Jewish people, Morrison is 100% decent.

    Fact 2: On Israel and the Jewish people, Albanese is 100% indecent.

  8. calli says:

    He has done the right, the moral thing. He has backed Israel.

    Well done.

  9. Ed Case says:

    … fiery Muslim cleric …?
    … community activist …?
    I’m thinkin’ Spook, as well.
    It goes with the territory, don ‘t it?

  10. Franx says:

    Intimations of things awry in the coordinated arrival in Israel of Scott Morrison and Boris Johnson.

  11. C.L. says:

    Franx, you keep leaving the ‘X’ off your name – which sends you into moderation.

    Or do you wish to change your posting name?

  12. Franx says:

    Sorry, C.L.
    Keyboard slippage, jumping screens, clumsy digits, overlooking details.

  13. NFA says:

    Shorter headline,

    2 Christians go to support Israel…

    A godless Australian communist goes to China.

  14. Boambee John says:

    Ed’s love affair with Mizzz Knickerless is threatened by his newly revived passion for Scotty, the Stradivarius player.

  15. shatterzzz says:

    Is he on a private visit or on the taxpayers dime? .. getting very tired of these ‘should be at work” pollies showing up overseas for no reason except a bit of media attention ..!

  16. Entropy says:

    Morrison was not a good PM. He just won the musical chairs event. As has Albanese.

  17. Entropy says:

    Oops. Hit send accidentally.
    The reason he wasn’t a good PM is he was only interested in the retail and marketing. He stood for nothing, and thought the answer to every political problem was to throw money at it. He had no plan(s).
    That does not detract from the likelihood he is at heart a god man, as this trip demonstrates.

    PS would not even an opposition member need to inform the government of travel plans? And Albo still didn’t go while OS?

  18. Ed Case says:

    Terrific PM.
    Australia would be in Depression now if Shorten or Albanese had been PM during Covid-19.
    Musical chairs?
    Turnbull’s polling was terminal, like Abbott’s, so he had to be replaced.
    He was the best of the 3 Liberal PMs by a long way.
    Personality defects brought him down, rather than inability to govern.
    Going to Israel is risky for the Liberal Party if the Gaza War is followed by a Lebanon/Syria/Iran War.

    Perhaps you’d like to say that to his face, Ed. If you wouldn’t mind, live stream that and post the the link here, it might redeem the total lack of credibility you’ve accumulated.

  20. Ed Case says:

    You’ve got a lot to say about me, whether you’d say it to my face, I couldn’t say.
    But I know this:
    You wouldn’t be sayin’ it for long.

  21. Buccaneer says:

    Ed, you are totally delusional, I’d be quite happy to say everything I’ve posted here to your face. You’re also welcome to threaten me directly to my face, I feel very comfortable that you might have second thoughts when you see me in person.

    Now back to that Muslim Cleric you just called ‘a flamer’, please let us know when your bravado might extend to threatening him too?

  22. John Brumble says:

    You about to do one of your “presto revealo” stunts where your next fake name is the name of a real acquaintance of yours you decided you don’t like, Googlery?

    You know the trick. The one where you use their name to support your obnoxious online trolling.

  23. Franx says:

    Indications at present are that Boris Johnson could in Israel for the same reason he was in Turkey March 2022, doing the dirty work for the US and the UK, stymying diplomacy and a ceasefire.
    In which case, ‘support’, as epitomised by Johnson and augmented by that champion of goodwill, Morrison, is not such a curious code, after all, and likely true: promises promises promises of having Netanyahu’s back, and promises of lots of hardware. Netanyahu might think his is a very different fate from that of Zelensky. I hope Netanyahu starts to think differently.

  24. Franx says:

    On reread, BJ I was in Kiev supporting Z, not in Turkey, while the ceasefire-peace negotiations were on in Turkey.
    Back in Kiev during the thick of the negotiations early April there was that incident of the poisoning of negotiators with chocolates, an incident very very closely, closely ‘investigated’ by Bellingcat, who know a lot about chemical poisoning. Some days later, one of the negotiators was murdered in the streets of Kiev. Inadvertently, it seems, by the Ukranian secret police who claim they had mistaken the dead man for a traitor. All very much territory peopled by sojourners in the business of support.
