At the end of his government, in the federal election of March 1983, Malcolm Fraser was so desperate to land a blow on the surging campaign of Opposition Leader Bob Hawke that he tried to fire up all the scares at once. And Hawke humiliated him by dismissing them all at once. When Fraser told a rally that “people would be better off keeping their money under the bed” if Labor won, Hawke snarked back: “But you can’t put your money under the bed… that’s where the commies are.” Anthony Albanese could learn from that. An opponent who’s being desperate and ridiculous can be easily be made to look… desperate and ridiculous.
