The Minister for Immigration Peter Dutton has put on a baffling display at his latest press conference by sticking his fingers in his ears and shouting ‘La, La, La’ repeatedly when asked a question by a journalist from the ABC. Minister Dutton then stormed out of the press conference screaming: ‘You’re all dead to me,” when a follow up question was asked by a journalist from the Guardian newspaper.
“Look Peter has a had a difiicult day his friend Andrew Bolt told him a scary story about some farmers in South Africa and it traumatised him deeply,” said Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. “But don’t worry he’s okay now. He is snuggled up in bed with his favourite lump of coal and I will go in soon to read him a story.”
“One of his favourites like Titanic or the White Australia Policy.”
When asked whether the public should expect Minister’s to behave more like adults when dealing with the media the Prime Minister replied: “Oh you’re serious, sorry I thought you were joking. I promise to have a word with Petey Dutton and we will try and control his temper tantrums.”
“Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go and deal with little Scotty Morrison. He is refusing to share his crayons with the other Ministers.”
