Scott Morrison posts memes to make light of secret ministries scandal

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has chastised his predecessor for making light of secretly taking on five portfolios during the pandemic.

Scott Morrison, who was sworn in to oversee the departments of health, finance, treasury, resources and home affairs, on Thursday commented on memes and posted photoshopped images of himself in various groups, including as the head of the NRL’s Cronulla Sharks.

Mr Albanese expressed his dismay at Mr Morrison’s actions on Friday.

“This undermining of the parliamentary system of government, of the whole Westminster system and our democratic traditions of accountability, are something that aren’t a laughing matter,” he told the ABC.

“I’m surprised at the response of Mr Morrison to this but then again, I frankly was shocked by the revelations.”

“I’m also somewhat surprised that there’s been no concept that there’s a need to say to the Australian people that the wrong thing was done.”

It’s been fun joining in on all the memes. But there are so many now I can’t keep up. As Aussies we can always have a chuckle at ourselves.

It comes as Opposition Leader Peter Dutton has taken aim at upcoming legal advice from the solicitor-general on Mr Morrison’s action.

As scrutiny of Mr Morrison increases, Mr Dutton said the advice would offer nothing more than a chance for Mr Albanese to criticise his predecessor.

The solicitor-general is expected to advise the government on Monday, following revelations of Mr Morrison’s series of confidential ministerial appointments between March 2020 and May 2021.
