Hehe that's what Libs say about Malcolm Fraser

Malcolm Fraser's politics didn't shift, he was a conservative. What shifted was the political agenda.

What is considered centre today was raving lunatic right wing a few decades ago.

We've been going backwards for decades.

Morrison recently made a speech about climate change, where he whinged about people sitting in wine bars discussing climate change - cos clearly only those real australians who live in the bush know about climate change. he made the speech in a wine bar.

Our PM, “I’ve been in evacuation centres where people thought I was just giving someone a hug and I was praying, and putting my hands on people … laying hands on them and praying in various situations,” he honestly believes his laying hands will cure people, even Abbott wasn't this bad:

Abbott was always destined to be the worst PM we ever had. I'm gobsmacked at the thought that so soon after Abbott we haver a very serious contender for the title.

Bit of a slow learner, the old scomo.
You would have thought that he’d know by now that putting his hands on people without their consent could get him into a bit of trouble...

No competition. Slowmo hands down the worst
Maybe we need different categories. Onion Eating, Budgie Smuggler wearing, Blank silent stare at reporter, Knighthood to Queen's old man awarding Abbott really deserves the title. Morrisson is a different sort of worse.

And we have instances where he forced people to shake his hand. It was odd behaviour then, but if what he was really trying to do was pray, then it explains the insistence. Well, explains why he insisted, doesn't make it any better.

Morrison is going to double the capacity of Howard Springs, about time!!
There wouldn't be so many Australians waiting to get home if he had increased the capacity 6 months ago.
