Eve Sinton, Upper Main Arm

Scott Morrison just dug a deeper hole for himself with his disastrous press conference on women. It was all about HIM.


What he should have said: All people working in Parliament and the political sphere, take note – it is not okay to ply your workmates (male or female) with drink or drugs to the point where you can take advantage of them – whether sexually or in any of the many ways bullies assert power over others.

If the only way you can get off on sex is to compromise others and force yourself on them, you are a pathetic wanker who is so inadequate with human relationships you degrade yourself by taking advantage of other human beings. That is disgusting to anyone with a moral compass.

And if you are so degraded that you get off secretly wanking and fucking around in Parliament House, you belong at the bottom of the dole queue. Forever.

Every person who takes a job here is serving the Australian nation and deserves to be supported to achieve their career best.

If you are a pathetic, exploitive, ethically bankrupt individual, a parasite on decent taxpayers, you deserve to be exposed, shamed, and sacked.

Now, why can’t he and his motley crew just come out and say this?

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Goodness gracious, Eve… Captain Kid & Co can’t be expected to understand what
    the Women of Australia are saying. We speak in a language so foreign they’ll never
    get their brain-span around the yoke of the matter. MM (meme) ministers. Don’t
    women get it? It’s a mans’ world inside the ‘House’ & we need to be grateful for
    being allowed to listen in on their cockeyed sense of self. Panadol won’t fix it.

  2. Eve, the fact is that Morrison doesn’t really care about the welfare of citizens otherwise he wouldn’t have personally delivered RoboRobberyDebt that left a trail of destruction and misery that he purposely inflicted upon innocent Australians. His crocodile tears when he mentions wife Jenny, daughters and his widowed mother, is fooling no one.
