Dennis Atkins: Morrison is the most cynical politician to ever become PM

Scott Morrison and Dennis Atkins

In Morrison’s case, this frames his opportunism – he gauges opportunity and grabs it when it appears. The other national leader who is labelled a Benthamite utilitarian is Britain’s Boris Johnson, someone also capable of stepping in every cow pat in the paddock but emerging with shiny shoes. It is wrong to label Morrison a pragmatist. In fact, he uses pragmatism to give his consequentialism a cloak of respectability. He is many things, as we learn week in, week out. Add this to what’s a mainly grim list: he’s the most cynical politician anyone has seen in the prime minister’s office.
