Scott Morrison has reportedly made a decision on whether he’s going to personally attend the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow later this year.
While it was speculated that the Prime Minister wanted to stay here in Australia for the rest of the year to coral the Nationals and receive second-hand praise when New South Wales and Victoria emerge from the Delta lockdowns – that is not the case.
“Look, I’d be happy to go to the Climate Change Conference,” Morrison told The Advocate this afternoon via telephone.
“If it wasn’t in Glasgow. Have you ever been to Glasgow in November? It’s a shithole, mate. Like anything west of the Sydney Fish Markets! Nah, look. I mean, would it have killed them to hold the conference in somewhere like Tahiti or dare I say it, Hawaii?”
“The whole bloody UK has essentially slid back to being a developing country in recent times, anyway. They don’t even have enough petrol to go ’round. The whole island is a fucking dump if you ask me. Save, of course, for London Zone 1 & 2. Everything else, you’d need a stab vest and a fucking raincoat!”
There was a pause on the line as Mr Morrison spoke briefly with his media advisor before he put the advisor on the phone to double-check who he was talking to.
“Is this The Betoota Bugle?” they asked.
More to come.
