Snap poll backs PM’s Hawaiian holiday

FEDERAL POLITICS:

Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s decision to take a family holiday to Hawaii as Australia faced unprecedented fire dangers was a fair and reasonable thing to do considering his workload during 2019 and his duties as a loving Christian husband and father, the first opinion poll taken of the controversial trip has shown.

In a major slap-in-the-face for countless critics on Twitter, Facebook and other online forums, the poll showed almost 80 per cent of respondents considered the PM “had nothing to be ashamed of and “nothing to answer for” for wanting as a devoted Christian man to spend time at Christmas with his beautiful wife and two loving daughters”.

Mr Morrison conducted the poll among fellow business-class passengers on his return flight from Honalulu on Hawaiian Airways to Sydney last night.

The poll’s findings were greeted with a rousing rendition of For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow and boisterous demands for “that top-shelf champers we know you’ve got hidden there” and more of those to-die-for canapes from the overworked stewards.
