The Morrison government

This satirical video shows some of the PM’s gaffes since the Liberal National Party government was elected on 24 August 2018 and still remains in office (by one seat?).

Close observers will realise that the quotes come from speeches when the Morrison government was under pressure on important issues (other than an inability to play the ukelele) .

Issues like climate change, women’s rights, refugees, the pandemic, workers rights … the list is endless.

SPEAKERS

Scott Morrison (Prime Minister)

Scott Morrison (Prime Minister of Australia) 

Good afternoon.

Well, thank you, everyone. It’s been a lot of talk this week.

But the truth is, I am in desperate need of this job. Which is why I’m here. It seems I’ve become very unpopular.

And the sad truth is, nobody likes me. Not even my wife Why should I? Why should I bother? Why shouldn’t I just walk away?

I need a miracle. And if you don’t help me keep my job. When the election finally comes, Jenny will leave me. And my heart is just profoundly sad.

I mean, seriously, guys, this is not about politics. This is about me. Jenny and I spoke last night. And she said to me, Scott, you’re actually incompetent. Especially on the ukulele.

I was completely stunned. I mean, it’s just a very small guitar. Just because I started playing. It doesn’t make me any less of a man.

Obviously, I need to practice the stupid thing.

But it shouldn’t be that hard to play. Darling. Please don’t leave me. I’m experiencing profound sorrow. But I promise you, I can get lessons to learn how to play. And I know you know that. Jenny will not let you down. Thank you very much.
