Morrison is politicising coronavirus to deflect from the #sportsrorts . He's a low act.
 
In reply to @theage
What matters isn’t how Australians see it, it’s whether or not people get sick. There is a big difference for the government though: Unlike the fires, acknowledgement of Coronavirus as a major issue requires no admission of past policy inadequacies.
 
In reply to @theage
I see it as opportunistic...to turn our attention away from the unprecedented corruption & policy failures of the LNP.
 
In reply to @theage
It's the corruption under leadership of Scott Morrison that's reached #pandemic stage & has also infected #AFP. #ResignNowScotty #auspol
 
In reply to @theage
A distraction. A cynical attempt to refocus attention elsewhere. Clever ? No. Marketing failure.

Mister Holiday Bushfires manufacturing a second chance to make a first impression. #ScottyfromMarketing #ausFRAUD #LNPCorruption #auspol
 
In reply to @theage
The only thing the PM has learnt is how to lie better.
 
In reply to @theage
The only thing #ScottyfromMarketing has learnt is that he’s been caught neck deep in corruption
 
In reply to @theage
First decent decision #ScoMo has made. If it takes off here, it will decimate our people, strain our health care system and damage our economy, including tourism. Go hard and loosen up later. #Australia #coronavirus
 
In reply to @theage
Morrison can say whatever he likes. What Morrison does, well, that's entirely different. He will take more power, more control over people's lives but not much more than that. He just wants to tell the world how great he is because he said it first.. #ScottyFromMarketting fails

SarahMartin:The Coalition’s controversial sports grants scheme awarded $500,000 to an upmarket, Liberal-linked Perth tennis club boasting “million dollar views”, and $190,000 to a golf club in the Adelaide Hills that wanted to upgrade its foyer to attract more wedding bookings. pic.twitter.com/pdaVCOLWYI

#ScottyFromMarketing How can I create a diversion from #SportsRorts? 💡 Declare a Coronavirus pandemic before WHO does
 
It doesn’t look like he’s learned a lesson from the fires. It looks like he’s overextending too early to make it look like he’s a responsible leader after holidaying while the country burned.
 
In reply to @theage
#ScottyFromMarketting is about to announce a multi billion dollar funding agreement to scale up hospitals in liberal seats in preparation
 
In reply to @theage
He is creating hysteria. No lessons learnt. The writer needs to learn a lesson
 
In reply to @theage
No, he’s not treating it that way. He SAYS he’s treating it that way, but, as we know from bitter experience, the divide between what @ScottMorrisonMP says, and what he actually does, is a crevasse of massive proportions. #auspol
 
No. What matters is what is the most rational response to a virus threat. There’s a reason medical experts give a lot of consideration to the pandemic classification.
 
In reply to @theage
If only climate change had seen this type of action.
 
In reply to @theage
Great idea being proactive. A big thumbs up.
 
The press gallery president is happy to take a politician who has not proven to be a man of his word at his word
 
In reply to @theage
FFS This all about #ScottyfromMarketing diverting attention away from #SportsRorts.
 
In reply to @theage
What matters is how it works, not how it is seen Everything that is wrong with #auspoI #media wrapped up right here
 
In reply to @theage
It’s very funny how the PM is criticised for inaction and now he is being very proactive he is accused of being opportunistic.Glad it’s not my job.
 
In reply to @theage
He's jumping on to the pandemic because he sees that as his excuse for not having a surplus..
 
In reply to @theage
He's jumped the gun!! And he has no plan! Quarantine in stadiums? When large numbers of us live in isolated houses? Closer you are the greater the infection risk! Ffffaaaarrrrkkkk!!!! 🙄🙄🙄🙄
 
In reply to @theage
Whitewashing Hawaii and bushfire inaction by faux action.
 
In reply to @theage
The alternative is to bury our head in sand and 🙏 for best outcome ;-)
 
In reply to @theage
Wrong The Age. Are you blind to Scotty’s key driver? Positioning... not rational decision making. That’s why he made such a balls-up of the bush fire crisis. He misread the positioning piece on that one big time. He’s a dodo bird. It’s not what you do it’s the way that you do it.
 
In reply to @theage
A distraction Australia has NOT had anything but a few people with a Temperature. If ALL people entering Oz are tested for High Temp. There will always be 10 per Planeload
 
In reply to @theage
Shame he couldn't declare a climate crisis before it became a crisis
 
In reply to @theage
It's he getting ready to go to Hawaii again?
 
In reply to @theage
More than likely Australians are rushing to the doctors even if they fart out of tune Nowdays.
 
In reply to @theage
Should have been called earlier and airports closely monitored months ago. It’s much more serious than we’re being told in the media
 
In reply to @theage
Because he thinks he can get some political leverage. He is clutching at straws after his abysmal performance and this is all crafted to make him look like a compassionate leader... Which he clearly is not.
 
In reply to @theage
He’s up to something!
 
In reply to @theage
Does the age call this journalism?
 
In reply to @theage
🦠👎🏻WHO belongs to China🇨🇳👹👿. Unbelievable, untrustworthy. You can't believe all the numbers the Chinese government has shown to the world. Ask more questions, you can find out the answer yourself, but China🇨🇳 can’t draw a circle ⭕️. 🥴liar🇨🇳🐍☠️👹👿👎🏻👎🏻😡
 
In reply to @theage
This party sold out the resource that would have fed into the power policy which now after 7 years and we are totally bereft of one. But there is always the medical and care sectors which can be sold off.
 
In reply to @theage
Not getting told the whole truth and how bad it really is
 
In reply to @theage
Prime Minister’s quick reaction minimise our risks! Can’t be complacent! #WuHanSARS @ScottMorrisonMP @AlboMP #Australia
 
In reply to @theage
#ScottyFomMarketing hasn’t learnt a thing he is playing from Little Johnny’s playbook. When in trouble create a faux drama, it is all spin and bulk dust. #sportsrorts #CrimeMinisterMorrison #LiarFromTheShire
 
In reply to @theage
Thank god he's taking steps to protect this country. WHO always makes it's declarations AFTER it's too late.
 
 
In reply to @theage
Isn't ScoMo close to God, ( or so he thinks), so he should be ok!
 
In reply to @theage
Better be a fast learner than a slow respondent?
 
 
 
In reply to @theage
Excellent decision.
 
In reply to @theage
As if ANYONE should trust the WHO or the CCP. I'm happy with our Australian governments decision 👍 youtu.be/AwFTZawOc9k
 
In reply to @theage
His response by closing border early was good.
 
In reply to @theage
decisive. japan just announced its schools are to shut until end March. Better to wait and do nothing and for it to spread faster And wider?
 
In reply to @theage
 
In reply to @theage
He was safe from the fires but he is worried this might be different - the virus might get closer to home. Better do something this time.
 
In reply to @theage
It's the right thing to do.
 
In reply to @theage
No matter what the PM does there will be a bunch of Lefties complaining and hoping to gain some relevance. Wheather you like it or not, he made the right call. Unless you want a higher certainty to get the virus of course. #CoronaVirusUpdates #CoronavirusOutbreak #Covid_19
 
In reply to @theage
Not threatening but in this case I do agree with him. It’s coming and all of us better be prepared (hospitals / medics front line / business / schools / community / public transport etc)
 
 
In reply to @theage
Totally agree with what he is doing KEEP AUSTRALIA SAFE
 
In reply to @theage
He is fighting for political survival
 
In reply to @theage
He needs any diversion to take the heat off the sports rort saga which was corruptly driven by him
 
In reply to @theage
Declaring pandemic because #Chinese students arriving in #Australia via other means?
 
In reply to @theage
He’s hanging on by a thread now, isn’t he? Oldest trick in the book- Control electorate with fear.
 
In reply to @theage
#ScottyfromMarketing will ride in on his white horse, he’ll fuck things up completely, his horse will trample and shit on it and #Scummo will ride off thinking he’s done his job.
 
In reply to @theage
He’s working too hard he maybe due for an island getaway by now 🤣
 
In reply to @theage
Excellent to be on front foot with winter on its way
 
In reply to @theage
Has he learnt a lesson? Lol
 
In reply to @theage
How does the PM's decision affect DFAT notification for travellers to JAPAN for instance? Can they now organise a flight refund?
 
In reply to @theage
#closetheairports go hard go early. Up to 300k Australian lives could depend on it.
 
In reply to @theage
is considering support for business affected by coronavirus but there are small businesses around that still can’t get support at all after being affected by the bushfires. It’s bloody disgraceful. How can anyone be confident that his musing on this aren’t BS.
 
In reply to @theage
#LNP have already screwed up with #COVIDー19 cf #JacindaArdern's response. Quarantine action should have been taken immediately. #Hospitals are chronically #underfunded with staff shortages. #SurgeCapacity is a fantasy. So already the #LNPfail lets #Australians down. #auspol
 
In reply to @theage
Desperate.. That’s how I see it 🤦‍♀️
 
In reply to @theage
Less talk, more action @ScottMorrisonMP .... FOR THE PEOPLE, NOT YOUR $$$ MATES
 
In reply to @theage
Nuh! He lost me in Hawaii
 
In reply to @theage
I want to see @ScottMorrisonMP on national TV offering prayers to his Skydaddy to stop the Chinese coronavirus. Then explaining to us all later on why his Skydaddy doesn’t answer his prayers. That would be very entertaining.
 
In reply to @theage
What about blocking folks from Indonesia and other parts of the world where the Corona virus has taken effect......and then there's South Korea where the response to this virus is too relaxed!? How is the Australian government responding to this?
 
In reply to @theage
Isn’t it an Australian aphorism to say “its better to have it, and not need it, than to need it but not have it”, as in pandemic preparedness and emergency stocks in place at hospitals, and staff prepped?
 
In reply to @theage
The WHO is corrupt and China owns them.
 
In reply to @theage
I see it as corrupt criminal organisation manipulating the facts about coronavirus to give themselves more powers! The #auspol criminals sold out Australia & betrayed all Australians with the bushfires & now we're expected to believe them with this? No chance! #AuspolSoCorrupt
 
In reply to @theage
Trying to hide his corrupt government
 
In reply to @theage
I have no confidence in Morrison to handle any crisis well.
 
In reply to @theage
Australia is not capable to handle day by day Hospitals needs, not any empty beds, many hours waiting time in the hospital to be seen by a doctor, not enough Doctors, nurses.
 
In reply to @theage
Well he can't go to Hawaii if the Corona viruse is there
 
Retailers were already suffering before the Virus. Aussie retail & tourism double hit due to bushfires. World economy to decline, Australia more than most. Need innovation from the gov’t to keep us out of recession. Bigger tax refunds will stimulate some degree @ScottMorrisonMP
 
 
Based on the available data, WHO (the elite of the science world) state that Covid-19 is not a pandemic, and may or may not become one, its to early to tell. #ScottyfromMarketing A man, limited in his knowledge of most things, outside of 'thoughts and prayers'...
 
Bullshit. He’s putting up a smokescreen and distracting the voters from the corruption concerning the so called Sports Rorts.
Scotty from marketing. The wordsmith, the inventor of his own semantic narrative. He’s at it again folks. It’s endless and tedious. He must resign.
 
#thisisnotjournalism It's RW propaganda, trying to edify a govt that is doing it's duty, in order to minimise the LNP's enormous policy failure & corruption.
