Branded a ‘liar’ by the French, Scott Morrison’s slipperiness is now on show for the world to see | Hugh Riminton | The Guardian

Scott Morrison

Sacked by NZ, Sacked by the LNP, Sack him again Australia. He hasn’t changed and never will.

All ridiculously trivial, but not quite innocent. When cornered, the Australian prime minister breaks the glass and reaches for distraction…. on Sky News, warning about “glass houses”. “Right now, you would be aware that in your own organisation there is a person who had had a complaint made against them for harassment of a woman in a women’s toilet,” thundered Morrison. Not true, said Sky’s owners at News Corp. The prime minister issued a late night withdrawal. 

“I have a lot of respect for your country,” Macron said, making plain he blamed Morrison specifically for what he contends was a lie. “A lot of respect and friendship for your people.” How the story unfolded: Scott Morrison and Emmanuel Macron’s submarine stoush  Morrison’s response was to defend Australia’s honour, citing his own “broad shoulders” “I’m not going to cop sledging of Australia. I am not going to cop that on behalf of Australians.”
