Grace Tame has hit out at former Prime Minister Scott Morrison, describing his secret acquisition of several government portfolios as a “disgrace”.

Appearing on Thursday night’s episode of Q&A, Ms Tame was asked about her thoughts on Mr Morrison’s self-appointment to five ministerial portfolios during his time as Australia’s leader, and the 23-year-old activist had plenty to say.

“The gaslighting, the dishonesty, was another level that we witnessed,” she said.

“He wasn’t even a good enough villain – he had the ambitions of Voldemort with the brains of Peter Griffin,’ she added, referring to the villain of the Harry Potter series and main character of the TV series Family Guy.

“It’s very important that we have people in positions of power that we can trust.

“It was a disgrace – we need better than that.”

Her comments come after Mr Morrison became the first former Prime Minister to be censured in federal parliament – a rare move to show parliament’s condemnation of his actions.

Mr Morrison was condemned by members of the House of Representatives for failing to disclose that he had appointed himself as the minister for health, finance, home affairs and industry, energy, resources, science and treasury.

During the Q&A episode, Ms Tame also revealed that she has considered stepping back from her public life, given that the man who sexually abused her as a child has continued to harrass her.

“I’ll be honest with you, yes I do (think about stepping back),” she said.

“I’ve had a really hard 24 hours. This morning I was meeting with the Department of Public Prosecutions.

“The child sex offender who abused me has been menacing and harassing me all this year.

“He hasn’t really stopped for the last 12 years, behind the scenes.”
