In a post at his blog today, Andrew Bolt pushes Scott Morrison’s barrow by praising Morrison’s ‘successes’ in ‘stopping the boats’ (code for stopping non-white foreigners from entering Australia). Bolt suggests that, once the boats have been stopped for good, Abbott might consider replacing Malcolm Turnbull with Morrison as Minister of Communications, a portfolio that has responsibility for the funding of and dealings with the ABC. Bolt also suggest that Morrison be groomed for leadership behind Joe Hockey.
Bolt says: “I look at the ABC and cannot help thinking what tremendous good a Morrison could achieve that a Malcolm Turnbull won’t....”
I look at what Bolt’s saying and cannot help thinking that he’s sucking up to Morrison with an eye on actually being appointed to the ABC board himself… May whatever Deity you believe in help all of us if that ever happens!
And, as for Scott Morrison ever becoming Prime Minister of Australia… there is no Deity able to help us then!
