The flood ravaged town of Lismore in NSW is to be evacuated later this week to allow Australian Prime Minister Scotty from marketing the opportunity to take in the damage and have his photo taken without being shouted down by disaffected locals.
”In an ideal World the PM would walk the streets, shake a few hands, pick up a few water damaged goods and hug a few locals,” said a Government Spokesperson. ”But, the fact is empathy isn’t really Scott, err ScoMo’s strong suit so it’s best we leave him to deal with those he feels most comfortable with.”
”His team of photographers.”
When asked if the PM was seriously going to inspect flood damage and not meet or be photographed with any locals, the Government Spokesperson said: ”Well, we may dress up a few young Lib’s to look like locals, so that counts doesn’t it.”
”Besides, the locals don’t want their picture taken with the PM, they want people to help them clean up their lives and assist them with moving forward.”
”That’s not the PM’s job, his job is to win elections and you don’t win elections by getting abused in flood zones for your lack of effort.”
