Pub stunt backfires

Prime Minister Scott Morrison was caught off guard this week when he was confronted by an angry pensioner at a Newcastle pub.

Mr Morrison was put on the spot, as the clearly enraged man grilled the Prime Minister on everything from taxes to the delayed federal ICAC.

Aside from the heated exchange, Mr Morrison insisted he had a “very welcome reception”.

Albanese’s ‘tough question’

Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese also had an unexpected confrontation at a press conference in Perth.

The heckler asked Mr Albanese if he was “up for” a “tough question”, which the Opposition Leader gently rebuffed.

“Sorry, we can’t really do that. The Media Alliance people will get upset,” said Mr Albanese.

“I don’t think the media will mind at all,” the man insisted.

“We’re just taking questions from journalists, because that’s what you do at a press conference,” Mr Albanese clarified.

‘Ducking the questions’

The next day, Mr Morrison took a jab at Mr Albanese over the incident.

“Anthony Albanese has been ducking the questions for three years,” he told media.

“This election campaign, he’ll have to answer them. Yesterday I noticed he didn’t like answering questions and had the questioner removed.”

Ironically, seconds after sledging Mr Albanese for evading questions, the Prime Minister did just that.

He removed himself from the press conference, despite reporters clearly having more questions to ask.
