“We don’t want job-destroying, economy-destroying, economy-wrecking targets and goals, which won’t change the fact that there have been bushfires or anything like that in Australia,” Morrison told Sydney radio, 2GB.

 :whistle:

Apart from the fact that clean energy technology will overtake the fossil fuel industry over the next decade.  Not a good economic plan that....

Was reading a piece that his weird ass religion explains everything - apparently Pentecostals believe Jesus is making his second coming imminently, and everything that happens on earth is God’s plan, so a) climate change is God’s plan and b) it doesn’t matter because the second coming makes long term global damage irrelevant.

Now, I admit I read this at face value because it fits very neatly with my Morrison hate and religion hate. But no matter how true it is, it reinforces my belief that people of faith should not be allowed anywhere near political power.

Yeah thats pretty close, Pentecostal believers will ascend to heaven while non-believers remain on earth to be punished on the burning planet.
Unbelievable that he hasn’t been questioned on this before now.

Scotty from Marketing is deeply unhappy with the moniker Scotty from Marketing; first used by the brilliant satirical website the Betoota Advocate, but Morrison claims it’s a Labor Party label that other have picked up and run with:

https://www.ladbible.com/news/politics-scott-morrison-isnt-a-fan-of-the-scotty-from-marketing-nickname-20200120?source=lboz

The BA gave him the equally witty title the Nightwatchman after he was brought in to lead the LNP to an election they were widely expected to lose. The fact that Labor Party was led by someone with the electoral appeal of a wet fart meant the Nightwatchman exceeded expectations and evolved into Scotty from Marketing...

It was funny to see him get p*ssed off then trot out the but Labor bollocks.

He tried the same with emissions targets and Labor.

Not sure how much this has been reported over there but  :anguish:

Yeah, wondered when that would get cited. Horrendous.

It's interesting to consider where we would be in Oz if gun control was as lax as it was before Port Arthur. We're talking about a national problem with violence against women, but I dread to think how bad this would be if guns were more freely available.
Obviously, I'm speaking of a hypothetical world in which there is a greater club than Tottenham.

Yeah I would’ve thought their was a fair chance of a gun being used instead.

I see the Inspector who was in charge of the investigation has been stood after his press conference quite rightly
