Australia’s psychologists fear the the Nation may be suffering from the psychological condition known as Stockholm syndrome following news overnight that the Prime Minister’s popularity has skyrocketed as the Nation endures a pandemic inspired lock down.
”It’s quite common for prisoners to feel empathy for their captives, also known as Stockholm syndrome,” said a Spokesperson for the Nation’s Psychologists. ”In the case of Australia we are seeing this develop rather quickly.”
”I mean it was only a couple of months ago that the entire country was baying for blood as ScoMo lounged in Hawaii as the country burned.”
”Now they think he’s doing a great job.”
When asked why he felt his popularity was on the rise the Prime Minister said: ”I’m just an ordinary bloke. I like a beer, the footy and kicking back with the kids to do a puzzle.”
”If Australia likes me then that’s great. If they don’t well I remind them that the alternative is Peter Dutton.”
”Now, if you’ll excuse I’m off to to do a puzzle, I mean write my next address to the Nation.”
