The Greens have been the most vocal in their criticism of Scott Morrison for his trip to Hawaii. The PM returned today and apologised for his absence. The Labor Party has been silent about Morrison, to their credit; however, the Greens have been relentless in attacking the Prime Minister over the past week. So, in the interests of ‘put up or shut up’, the Thought Hub has reviewed the actions of the three most prominent Greens MPs over the past week, according to what they have shared. Let’s see how they went:
Lectured Morrison from her air conditioned office, using the tragic death of volunteer firefighters to maximum advantage to make a political point.
Protested in the city surrounded by people who agree with her.
Shared posts from Greenpeace.
Shared videos about Christmas lights.
Threw mud at Scott Morrison, using the tragedy for maximum political advantage.
Labelled the weather as ‘apocalyptic’ to scare the shit out of everybody.
Lectured Australians on how to do Christmas.
Had a go at Scott Morrison, lecturing him about the need to be ‘above politics’ while he exploits the tragedy for maximum political gain.
Live streamed himself speaking at a protest surrounded by people who agree with him. DiNatale did at least visit Binna Burra, Lamington National Park on December 14 to inspect damage done by the fires – so some credit is due there.
So, after reviewing the most high profile Greens MPs and their activities over the past few days, the Thought Hub can conclude that they have done very little to help the crisis other than lecture, hound and try to score cheap political points.
