Tag: Least Trusted
On the matter of trust, in March 2022 Roy Morgan published the results on polling undertaken that placed Angus Taylor as the 7th least trusted politician in Australia, placing behind Dominic Perrottet (6th), Craig Kelly (5th), Pauline Hanson (4th), Barnaby Joyce (3rd), Peter Dutton (2nd) and Scott Morrison (1st).
He has struggled with public perceptions that he has put his own, and his family’s, interests before the public interest. We all know that Morrison has damaged the Liberal brand, possibly irrevocably. We know that Peter Dutton had a limited field from which to choose when allocating shadow portfolios.
That does not make Angus Taylor a hopeless choice, but it illustrates the lack of front bench talent, and the question to ask is, is Angus Taylor up to the task? Did he lack the ability to do his last job properly, or was he running dead, to sabotage the transition to renewables? That is the question we must ask ourselves.
As to the Coalition attempting to put together an alternative government, I would question whether Peter Dutton as alternative prime minister, and Angus Taylor as the alternative treasurer, really cuts it. I wouldn’t vote for them in a fit.

He scammed Biden. He stabbed Macron in the back. Now he’s trying to do us over slowly while trying to con the Cop26 nations while doing nothing. Yet, he dares call himself our Prime Minister. He’s White, a Christian, a liar and fudamentally a parasite. He’s been one since he graduated and he’s modelled himself on Trump who in turn admires all the authoritarian leaders.
The Prime Minister has changed one word in the government’s policy. Until this week, he’d pledged Australia to “reach net-zero, preferably by 2050”. The new policy omits the word “preferably”. And that one-word edit carries some remarkable implications. Not for the climate. Morrison’s new 126-page “plan” won’t actually cut an extra tonne of emissions from the atmosphere. As it says, it’s “based on existing policies”. Scott Morrison launched the government’s net-zero emissions plan, “The Australian Way” on Tuesday.

The Australian tech entrepreneur Mike Cannon-Brookes is investing billions in renewable energy. He read the “plan” and judged it “ridiculously embarrassing”: “I understand technology damn well. This isn’t a ‘technology-driven approach’. It’s inaction, misdirection and avoiding choices.”
