REVEALED: Nando’s behind prank to steal Scott Morrison’s compassion

Scott Morrison satire

The mystery behind Immigration Minister Scott Morrison’s missing compassion was solved today when fast food chain Nando’s claimed they had stolen it as part of a PR stunt.  

But despite the revelation, some commentators are already claiming the whole thing is a hoax, pointing to evidence that Mr Morrison never had any compassion in the first place.

Riley Corbourt who lives in the same area of Sydney as Mr Morrison said he hadn’t even heard of the Immigration Minister’s compassion. “Maybe it’s just really small, but I don’t remember ever seeing it, and I’ve lived here all my life.”

Mr Morrison said he “could neither confirm or deny” the claims due to operational security.

    Further evidence of his lack of compassion has emerged from leaked details from a recent cabinet meeting.
    He proposed a policy of dealing with those relying on welfare be encouraged to pull themselves up by their boot straps by beating them with a stick,an amendment to the proposal was put forward whereby they would be beaten with a stick until the stick breaks then deduct the cost of the stick from their Centrelink payments.
    The meeting erupted into a cacophony of whooping and laughter,with the members of the cabal high fiving each other with the win,win solution.

    I have it on pretty good authority that this was only a part of the plan. The big move was to replace Scott Morrison with a giant mango so the electorate would be comfortable in the knowledge that the government was serious about doing something proactive on border security. The mango would be more open and transparent with information and certainly display a good deal more compassion. Watch this space!!
