Labor’s finance spokesperson Katy Gallagher allegedly accused Mr. Morrison of deflecting from his responsibility while she was being interviewed by the ABC. “When things are not going good, it’s always someone else’s issue,” she said following Mr. Morrison’s press conference on Monday in which he stated that interest rates were not about politics.
But the breaking news right now is, was the chicken korma actually raw in Mr. Morrison’s controversial homemade chicken curry photograph that he posted on social media?
ScoMo posts regular photographs of his culinary creations on his social media accounts. But this week one of those photos sparked a horrified response from the public.
On Sunday night Mr. Morrison’s photograph of a meal he had cooked for his wife and kids appeared on social media.
“Nice to have a night at home. So curry it is. Sri Lankan Tamarind Eggplant and Okra Curry and a classic Chicken Korma.” This was the caption Mr. Morrison posted with his photograph.
“Strong curry. Strong economy. Stronger future.” Mr. Morrison said.
The meal appeared very undercooked, raising eyebrows.
The comments rolled in. “Salmonella poisoning incoming,” wrote one commenter. “Explains Engadine,” wrote another in the backlash. Other comments included, “How good is raw chicken?”, and “fair dose of salmonella for those who have a go.”
Fifi Box, host of Melbourne’s Fox FM (radio) spoke with Mr. Morrison and the Prime Minister insisted that it was “just the way the light bounced off the skin of the chicken,” when asked about “the most talked-about curry in the county”.
“You love posting photos of your food. We love seeing it but everybody is convinced that the chicken korma you cooked the other night had raw chicken. Is this true or false?” she asked.
“People went back for seconds. It was in the pan for a good 45 minutes I can tell you because I had it there myself,” Mr. Morrison replied.
He then referenced a recent pretend-shopping trip during a campaign pit stop at a greengrocer on Saturday.
“I picked up the okra and the eggplant in Rockhampton when I was visiting the markets up there and so to everyone up there, thank you. It was delicious,” he said.
When asked how he was able to get around the strict quarantine rules in order to bring the fresh ingredients over the border from Queensland to NSW, Mr. Morrison suggested the RAAF was “very helpful”.
Ukuleles and Curry dinners – what else will ScoMo come up with to deflect from the real issues in our once beautiful country?
Perhaps it is time to address the real elephant in the room, Mr. Morrison… Your inability to be a strong leader for a country that is slowly going down the drain with you at the helm!
