Scott Morrison ‘an Absolute Arsehole’ says former Liberal Party Justice Minister

July 1, 2019

Untitled-1

Former Justice Minister Michael Keenan, who served under Scott Morrison once slammed the PM as an “absolute arsehole”.

The startling revelation is published in a new book Plots and Prayers by Insiders panelist and political commentator extraordinare Niki Savva.

According to Savva, the frank character assessment was offered up by Keenan during a meeting between Finance Minister Mathias Cormann, Attorney-General Christian Porter and Morrison’s chief ally Ben Morton in the midst of the leadership furore that led to the party dumping Malcolm Turnbull.

Porter joined in, saying he did not think Morrison was “a team player.”

Cormann said he had seen Morrison up close now, and, in his opinion, “Dutton was better.”

FOR CHRIST’S SAKE!

The book also reveals that Morrison and his fellow Pentecostal believer Stuart Robert, prayed that “righteousness would exalt the nation,” in the minutes before Mr Morrison was made prime minister by the Liberal party room.

Morrison also asked his receptionist to text his wife to ask that “his family pray for him” as he headed into a prayer session with Mr Robert.

“We prayed that righteousness would exalt the nation … righteousness would mean the right person had won,” Mr Robert told Savva.

THE LORD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS

Stuart Robert is now the Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme.

IT’S A MIRACLE!

The book also reveals Mr Morrison described his May 18 election win as a “miracle” and that he texted deputy Liberal leader and Treasurer Josh Frydenberg the night before to say the result was “in God’s hands” and that “I believe in miracles.”

The book also reveals Malcolm Turnbull ignored warnings from key allies about Peter Dutton and Mathias Cormann.

Former attorney-general George Brandis told Mr Turnbull early in 2017:

“For God’s sake, can’t you see this guy is stalking you?”

But Turnbull scoffed at the suggestion saying:

“Don’t be ridiculous, George. As if Dutton is capable of being prime minister.”

    but there you have it.

    What you have… if the ARU win (as you wish) there will be a legal precedent that a common law employment contract will supersede the legislated employment protections, that should be interesting as companies write their reviewed code of conduct and polices into employment contracts. Some companies might use policies such as –
    * Being connected to their customer demographic
    * Being a “family oriented” company
    * Expecting work attendance to be a significant priority regardless of personal circumstances

    Allowing companies and individuals to out of protected employment conditions will have ramifications beyond Folau and the ARU

    The great Philip Adams is 80 and still going strong.

    This is from a piece on him at the ABC website:

    “Before joining the ABC, Adams had a few stints on commercial radio, including a memorable show on 3AW in Melbourne when an interview with author Alan Marshall, who was wheelchair-bound after suffering polio as a child, strayed into a conversation about the need for sex workers to satisfy the desires of people with disabilities.

    “You can imagine what a shocking idea this was at the time when this kind of candour was unusual,” recalls Adams.

    “I said to Alan we should call it ‘feels on wheels’ and we both had a great laugh.
    “When I went off-air, the station manager was standing outside the studio and said we’ve had 600 phone calls of complaint, it’s an all-time record.

    “I said sorry about that, then he smiled and said it’s wonderful and I think on that day I was accidentally involved in the birth of shock-jockery.”

    And the last Four Corners I saw demonstrates precisely why they don’t love My ABC … gutsy stuff on the Murrumbidgee and Murry Darling fiasco … $13 billion pissed away in the rivers!

    Contract and casual mineworkers in Queensland are fearful of “retribution” if they complain about questionable safety practices, their union says, as the sector grapples with a sixth workplace death in the past year.

    The recent cluster of accidents and deaths, the worst on record in Queensland for 22 years, has prompted the state government to commission two independent reviews into mine safety.

    David Attenborough has highlighted Australia as an “extraordinary” example of a country where people in power remained climate change deniers despite the country facing some of the worst effects of global heating.

    Appearing before the UK parliament’s business, energy and industrial strategy committee on how to tackle the climate emergency, the celebrated broadcaster and natural historian was asked about claims people were overreacting to the threat of a climate emergency.

    He replied: “I am sorry that there are people who are in power … notably, of course, [in] the United States but also in Australia [who are climate change deniers], which is extraordinary because Australia is already facing having to deal with some of the most extreme manifestations of climate change.“Both [in] Australia and America, those voices are clearly heard and one hopes that the electorate will actually respond to those.”

    Asked to recall his most vivid impressions of humans’ impact on the planet, Attenborough said it was returning to the Great Barrier Reef, where he had first dived in the 1950s.

    “I will never forget diving on the reef about 10 years ago and suddenly seeing that instead of this multitude of wonderful forms and life that it was stark white. It had bleached white because of the rising temperatures and the increasing acidity of the sea,” he said.

    The Coalition government plans to close the Christmas Island detention centre by July, less than four months after reopening it over fears of an influx of asylum seekers.

    Despite Prime Minister Scott Morrison estimating the cost of reopening the detention centre on the island at $1 billion over four years, the budget papers reveal just $185 million has been allocated.

Ditto, there’s precisely no need for the draconian ‘gulag’ detention schema; which also wasn’t envisaged, by either the original, or the revived, Bali Process(es), which supposed relatively-rapid preliminary processings and communities detentions, with relevant and reasonably-resourced supports; but, is, apparently, and, also, isn’t a key selling point of the LNP’s buff(ed)-up), (para-)militarised, concentration-camp(s)-esque(, (non-)UNHCR-endorsed) approach to already-traumatised, and now further-traumatised, (non-)persons.)

    CFMEU lawyers are also considering legal action against the Australian Federal Police over their basis for wire tapping Mr Setka’s phone two years after the Boral incident.

    https://www.afr.com/news/policy/industrial-relations/cfmeu-leader-john-setka-considering-legal-action-over-failed-boral-blackmail-case-20180516-h10569

    The arrest should never have happened and this government must take responsibility.

    Setka was tracked from the minute he and his young family left home. Tracked while he ordered coffees for the adults and babycinos for Kate, now six; and Johnny, five. Followed through the markets for three hours. Followed and then pulled over by two unmarked police cars, lights flashing. When the police emerged from the cars, Setka says they had shoulder holsters and canisters strapped to their sides.

    https://www.smh.com.au/opinion/union-witch-hunt-meet-two-kids-now-terrified-of-the-police-20180517-h106uw.html

    Emma Walters insists her husband John Setka was never violent towards her despite “stomach turning” allegations the CFMMEU union boss threw an iPad at her face during a heated argument.

    The claims, contained in an affidavit that was leaked to the media against her wishes

    https://thenewdaily.com.au/news/national/2019/06/26/emma-walters-slams-alp-john-setka-actu/

    It’s quite obvious the victim wasn’t their core concern isn’t it?

    And I hope, if albo continues down his path, he inflicts pain on the party. Not Setka, but albo, who went off half cocked, and played straight into the ‘tories’ hands.

    If you were under the delusion that the great global warming scam-artists were really concerned about climate change Saikat Chakrabarti (AOC’s chief of staff and puppet master) sets you straight:

    “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” Ricketts greeted this startling notion with an attentive poker face. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.”

    “And I hope, if albo continues down his path, he inflicts pain on the party. Not Setka, but albo, who went off half cocked, and played straight into the ‘tories’ hands.”

    Some of us might think that this is a good thing or at least have a big guffaw about it.

    The bottom line is that even if Setka is a vioent volatile pig of a man, he has delivered for his members and it is perfectly understandable that they would want to keep him as their leader. Further, given that unions control the ALP, it may be more difficult than first thought to expel Setka.

    An ALP expulsion of Setka would be an affront to his union’s membership. In that case the ALP should not be surprised if the considerable human and financial forces of the CFMMEU are deployed against the ALP (and Albo) in particular at the next election.

    Of course, if Albo loses this stoush his credibility as leader is shot. He should then resign for the good of his party.
