    Rules for thee – not for me.

    “We are all in this together” – never means politicians.

    Yeah. For shame. We have a Prime Minister who is a Sharks supporter. We are the laughing stock of the world.

    I guess if she’s lost for words she can’t tells us why she’s lost for words.

    Well there you go, the things you learn at the Cat.

    I didn’t know that Marieke Hardy is a writer.

  11. Roger

    Wiki informs us that most of her writing has been scripts for TV comedies.

    One novel pblished in 2011 with a proposed follow up now 8 years in the making.

    The writer’s block may be permanent.

  12. Megan

    Good! Let’s hope it’s permanent.

    Daniel Andrews is the best Premier Victoria has ever had.

    He’s protecting Victorians while the lunatic hard right hate mob of Tim Smith, Gideon Rozner, Michael O’Brien, the Victorian Liberal Party and the IPA want to sacrifice the lives of Victorians.

    I had forgotten she existed.

  16. Mother Lode

    What is eating at her?

    He went to the footy. Dan Andrews has his state in lockdown. The simple fact is Dan’s state state, for all of his ‘heroic’ overreach, is in a shambles. Morro, on the other hand, does not govern a state.

    Morro is bad enough, but I am not going to blame him for the shitty situation Dan has Victorians in.

  17. cuckoo

    “I’m a writer.” Er, sure toots.
    In 2005, Hardy co-wrote and produced a 22-episode drama series for the Seven Network called Last Man Standing. The series struggled to gain ratings for its prime-time slot and was cancelled after one series.

    Hardy signed a two book deal with publishers Allen & Unwin, and the first of those books, You’ll Be Sorry When I’m Dead, was published in 2011. She began working on the second, a novel, in 2012

    That second novel has yet to appear. How much longer can I live without it?

    Ms Hardy may have writer’s tourette’s syndrome, I’m willing to stump up a few nouns and adjectives but I draw the line at zeugma, heaven knows what she’d do with that.

    A bloke goes to the footy and some dumb bint is struck speechless.

    Mind boggling.

    The millions of non English, poor cultural practices immigrants Sco Mo let in to keep his Multi Culti anything but right wing voting UN approved demographic had to settle somewhere.

    Surely that and the fact that he dam well knows the states are not to be in charge of Quarantine,it’s federal responsibility, and that the cabinet is not able to make laws, decrees or give anything but advice, might change your mind.
    The fact that not pulling out the Paris agreement means many oldies now in Victoria can’t afford heating and therefore catching colds that complicate their already many other problems and die, and that health and the ability to fight off viruses decreases with the decreased health that comes from the poverty of not having a job due to sending our industries off shore.

    He’s as guilty and removed from the people as any of them, if not more so.

    Because the perfect rejoinder has been written, titled “Still not Sorry!” 🙂

  24. Mother Lode

    Is she still doing that thing of dressing up like a cosplay little girl while beggaring the structural engineer’s art to enhance the prominence of her mammaries?

    Or was she at last ambushed by a moment when she realised that her ironic Lolita persona was being denied her by heron aging and she must try to get by on her meagre talents as a Frightbat.

    Or has she been to persistently stupid even for that.

    Yep

    Third generation bohemian progressive [bopro] royalty, connected and protected. Her first gig was playing nine year old character ‘Sally Marshall’ in the TV series ‘The Henderson Kids’, c.1987, she’s Australia’s answer to Tori Spelling.

  31. ACTOldFart

    At least ScoMo can get to a football game in his own state. Thanks to the massive corruption, incompetence, political correctness, kow towing to ethnic groups and the unwashed left etc etc, Victoria can’t even host a football match anywhere.

  32. Bronson

    Lucky bastard can go to the footy. Here in the land of perpetual fu*k ups lead by Dan of the Dead we’re lucky to be able to go to the corner shop.

    Picture was probably taken from hundreds of yards away and when you were actually there the protocols were being observed. I bet the language at the footy would have been right up her ally.

    Scott Morrison enjoying a beer at the footy while Victorians grapple with COVID lockdown is not a good lookCAROLINE OVERINGTON

    Just when you’re starting to think he hasn’t put a foot wrong he goes and puts his foot in it.

    His scarf in it.

    His plastic cup of beer in it.
    The pictures are everywhere.

    He’s in a crowd.

    He’s not wearing a mask.

    He’s whooping it up, cheering on his team, because, well, I don’t know, because we’re all Victorians now?

    Or only up to a point, Prime Minister?

    Yes, of course there will be people who say, oh, come on, he’s been working around the clock.

    Yes, he has.

    He’s entitled to a break.

    Yes, he is.

    Which is why, when Morrison said he wanted to take a few days off during this week’s school holidays, and asked for the nation’s understanding, he got such a warm response.
    Yes, go on then, off you go.

    We’ll manage and you’ve earned it.

    Then, like a man who hasn’t spent five minutes in the marketing department, Morrison on Saturday night turned up at the football, swirling a scarf around his head.

    Going mask-free, Scott Morrison waves a scarf around while Victoria is in coronavirus crisis. Picture: News Corp
    It was such a bad look.

    Such a dumb thing to do.

    It was the first weekend of the second Melbourne lockdown. Five million people are back behind closed doors.

    There’s no football here. There are no beers with the boys. No grandkids climbing onto grandma’s knee.

    There’s no nothing.
    People mock the “pub test” but it’s valid.

    You want a week off to spent time with your family during the school holidays? When they, and all of us, have been through such a harrowing time?

    You go for it.

    You want to wave a scarf around your head while Victoria is in a state of crisis?

    There are tower blocks in Melbourne shimmering with contagion.

    There are people dying.

    Of course, Morrison is not to blame for that. It’s not like he’s a toey security guard, or a quarantined traveller nipping out of lockdown for a plate of oysters and a ciggie.

    No, but people keep saying he’s “Scotty from Marketing” yet he cannot seem to read the room.

    It was the same during the bushfires, when Morrison told people to just relax, and go the cricket, before the game got smoked out.

    Now it’s: bad luck, Melbourne, and go the Sharks! Gleeful at freedoms not yet enjoyed by everyone, and without even donning a mask.
    Morrison got schooled on leadership during the bushfires, but maybe let’s say it again: leadership means empathy, and it means solidarity with those who are suffering.

    And it’s not like he was being asked to hold the stethoscope. Just stay home and watch the footy.

    Lead by example.

  44. Lee

    I am no great fan of Scott Morrison, but what a load of cobblers and specious arguing that article is.
    I mean, has anyone been keeping track of, and nit-picking Dictator Dan’s (or Palachook’s) every movement since the coronavirus started?
    No.
    Apparently conservative and right wing leaders are never allowed to relax for one moment.

  45. miltonf

    Just more mental vomit from the media and I’m not a ScoMo fan either. A lot of them are still cranky about last year’s result and haven’t forgiven the voters for not doing as instructed.

  51. Squirrel

    Morrison isn’t the one who hired sex-workers masquerading as security guards.

    When Ms Hardy regains her verbal faculties, she can lead the charge from the Left in explaining why “it’s time we talk about herd immunity” – because that’s very soon going to be the only way to spin the out of control clusterfuck in Danistan.

    All of that said, Morrison should have watched the footy on TV and only been seen in public on his weekend off doing family stuff.

  53. Mick Gold Coast QLD

    Hardy is a nobody, the proudly skanky progeny of a little known communist who snarled and whinged his way through life as a nobody. Frank spent a lifetime achieving nothing and ended up broke, telling stories to naive dullards on Tuesday or Thursday nights at Harold Park Hotel for beers and smokes.

    Overington hasn’t done much with her life either – a journalist¹, that deceitful, dishonorable class which holds no professional or trade qualification, yet they stand and watch what people who achieve do with their time and then write about how they did it all wrong.

    Scott Morrison, family man, went to the football on the weekend just like a lot of other blokes, as is his wont. Overington shrieks hysterically:

    “It was such a bad look. … Such a dumb thing to do.”

    Oh? Don’t waste peoples’ time, I’m watching the football. Go away – and get me a beer. Dumb cow.

    ¹ “journalists” – a notable description:

    “Every journalist who is not too stupid or too full of himself to notice what is going on knows that what he does is morally indefensible. He is a kind of confidence man, preying on people’s vanity, ignorance, or loneliness, gaining their trust and betraying them without remorse.” From Janet Malcolm, an American writer and journalist, sometime in the ’60s.

  54. Rob

    A couple of young fellas got killed in a car crash in Iceland – how dare Morrison go to the footy.

    Heh!

    Look on the bright side, that’s two more middle-aged talentless commie vinegar-titted brown-baggers who have removed themselves from the gene pool.

    The Hardy minger is what, 45?

  60. David Brewer

    Yes the headline is a masterpiece. CL has a rare knack of finding lines that are far-fetched but spot-on. A gift we all appreciate, thanks.

    And yes the telephoto is awfully obvious. Just look at the blur on the guy in the front, he is probably 20 meters away from Morrison. Other photos show most of the seats in the stadium blocked off to keep people distanced. No danger at all, especially when compared with the mass street protests weeks ago. So, wise move from Marieke – she would only have said something absurd anyway, so better to put a sock in it for once.

  61. Frank

    she’s Australia’s answer to Tori Spelling.

    The cruellest of things people say. Well done.

  62. Perfidious Albino

    Yes, kudos CL, your headline is exquisite.

    Encouragingly, the vast majority of the comments to Overingtons screed suggest she may be the one not reading the room.

    I’m no great fan of ScoMo, but part of me hopes he also considered that he was rubbing Premier Dan and his woke footy league’s nose in it just a little…

  63. gorgiasl

    “Glower Without Story”

    I noticed, such brilliance is expected.

  64. Iain Russell

    If Marieke is a ‘writer’ then I’m a Papist idolator. And I isn’t.

  65. Entropy

    Overington’s piece….a lot of this coronavirus bans etc are amazingly focussed on what the political class looks down on. So you should not go to the “socially distanced” footy to rub Comrade Fan’s nose in it.

  66. Mother Lode

    Overall I find Caroline Overington a bit hit-or-miss.

    In this case, it’s a miss.

    It is not a good look? So? I am more interested in the substance.

    We have had so many gestures, postures, pretenses and affectations from our leaders even as they do wrong. In fact, as soon as you start to focus on appearance you are shifting focus from merit.

    Besides which isn’t showing NSW (and other states that are not run by the nation’s most accomplished boneheads) that they can start getting back to their lives also important? It might even stir Victorians to demand better from their leaders. These are all appearance too.

    Finally, does it really make sense to expect someone to do the sackcloth and ashes thing while Victoria is in lockdown when, in a few months when they emerge from it, perhaps another state is having some disaster. Then another state. Then another. The people in each state would have its own desperate period and then a period of release, of buoyancy. But CO’s theory is that the PM must symbolise misery all year round when no people actually experience that.

  67. Alex

    Again, those who are imposing restraints do not believe in them. If they did they would but as they don’t they don’t. You know it makes sense.

  68. Delta A

    She could never come up with a title to equal: Glower Without Story.
