Scott Morrison is all about himself, and doesn’t really care about you.
That’s why when things go wrong – whether it is the bushfires or the COVID-19 vaccine rollout – he doesn’t take charge. But when things go right, he’s the first to take credit.
Scott Morrison doesn’t just apply this lack of accountability to himself – he also applies it to his ministers.
Scott Morrison doesn’t punish misbehaviour, he rewards it.
He’s not interested in what you want or need. He’s not on your side. He’s only in it for himself.
