This morning Scott Morrison – Sideshow Scott, Scotty from Marketing, the Liar from the Shire, Bullshit Boy, Pastor Disaster – was censured by Parliament, the first former Prime Minister in Australia’s history to be officially and thoroughly condemned by his peers, the condemnations set in Hansard, forever.
And there I was thinking I would never have to write another word about the demented Scott feckin’ Morrison...
Even though the ousted con artist and former prime minister is now an insignificant backbencher, news of his abuse of power and disdain for democracy, transparancy, accountability, parliamentary procedure and government norms continues to cause outrage. The latest revelations are mind-boggling in their implications.
That’s it. Done, dusted and exhausted. My bottle of Proper Twelve Irish whiskey is empty and the worst, most corrupt, cruel and duplicitous prime minister and Australian government in history has been roundly crushed and routed.
It feels less of an historic victory than a return to basic human decency.
