In a tell-all 60 Minutes interview with Karl Stefanovic, Anthony Albanese has revealed what he really thinks of Prime Minister Scott Morrison.
The 59-year-old Labor leader was grilled on his opinions of ScoMo, as the latest Newspoll conducted for The Australian shows Mr Albanese level with Mr Morrison as preferred prime minister for the first time in more than two years.
When Stefanovic asked if Albanese thought Morrison was a “liar”, he responded, “Scott Morrison’s got an issue with the truth.”
“He has said things to me that are simply untrue. He stood up in parliament. Why he did it is beyond me … and said that he texted me about where he was going when he went to Hawaii. That’s not true.”
He went on to say that everyday Australians have grown “more cynical” about the Liberal Party after enduring a pandemic, several natural disasters and countless political scandals.
“You look at even the photo ops this time, whether it’s the shampooing hair or, dare I say it, the ukulele playing … the welding without lifting up the mask before you weld, people look at it and go, ‘Ah, that’s not really his job'”, he said.
Ahead of the upcoming Federal Election, Albo said he was hoping to be “match fit” for the battle, prompting him to cut out all carbs and alcohol and transforming his health in just a few short months.
The Federal Election has yet to be officially called, however the Liberal Party’s budget is due to be handed down in just two weeks.
