ScoMo shoots down ‘awkward’ tweet from Liberal candidate

 

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has torpedoed a tweet from a local Liberal candidate that has come back to bite him on the campaign trail.

A resurfaced tweet from a local Liberal candidate has come back to haunt the Prime Minister on the hustings. 

The August 2015 post from Corangamite candidate Stephanie Asher criticised Scott Morrison – who was the social services minister at the time – for describing women as a “minority”. 

“Just heard Scott Morrison describe women as a minority group. Lol,” she wrote. 

“Please tell these guys women are 50% of world pop. Australia ldrship. Wow.”

 

She later told followers she was responding to an interview with Mr Morrison on ABC’s AM where he was asked about the additional one-off humanitarian intake of 12,000 Syrian and Iraqi refugees.

 

“Those who have been waiting in Lebanon and in Turkey and in Jordan and we’d be providing an opportunity for those, particularly prioritising the minority groups – persecuted minority groups, women, children, families, that’s what those 12,000 places are for,” he said at the time. 

Mr Morrison shrugged off Ms Asher‘s tweet when he was asked about it on Friday. 

“I have not seen that (post) but what I do know is more than 50 per cent of the board appointments we‘ve made to government boards are women now,” he responded.

 

He added the Coalition had “stepped up well beyond any of our critics” when it came to women.

What? No BLACK women on government boards???? Gus's sarcasm is beyond the pale....

 

MEANWHILE:

 

Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s legal team says a High Court bid to overturn a series of captain’s-call preselections will draw the Liberal Party into a lengthy legal quagmire that has little hope of ending in the ousted member’s favour.

Documents lodged before the High Court this afternoon allege exiled Liberal Matthew Camenzuli is trying to move “crab-wise” from his loss in the NSW Court of Appeal by adding more Liberal figures to the case, including NSW state director Chris Stone.
