Aftermath from Former Prime Minister Scott MorrisonThe decision to appoint itself to five additional ministerial portfolios continues. Malcolm Farr This morning we are writing on our front page Morrison’s explanation for his actions at Wednesday’s lengthy press conference was that the new job pile “wasn’t about making government more efficient. It was about Scott Morrison gaining more power.”
The politician who told an audience in Perth last month that he and an acquaintance “Don’t trust the government” A striking example of why trust is lost.
Even one of his most loyal supporters, Australian Paul Kelly, wrote this morning that Morrison’s actions had done “obvious” damage to the Liberal Party.
Liberals are the party of principled government and are supposed to respect institutions. But Morrison embarked on an untenable and deceptive accumulation of power. Can you imagine Robert Menzies secretly creating five additional portfolios for him without telling most cabinet members?
