PM stars in pandemic doco

A “fly-on-the-wall” documentary about the Morrison Government’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic will hit screens soon.

A spokesperson for the Prime Minister’s Office said a documentary film crew has been following Scott Morrison closely since the pandemic was declared early last year and  their film was now well into its post-production phase with publicity material being finalised. (main picture)

The spokesperson said the documentary focusses largely on the Prime Minister’s role in fulfilling his government’s three key responsibilities – protecting the aged care sector, quarantine and the national vaccine rollout.

Doubts over death

Doubt surrounds news of the death of former US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

Most media outlets this morning reported Mr Rumsfeld had died aged 88 at Taos in the American state of New Mexico.

But when The Bug sought confirmation of the news and contacted the Rumsfeld family, a spokesperson was non-committal.

“There are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns. That is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns — the ones we don’t know we don’t know,” the spokesperson said.

Hyundai offers opportunities

“We think this is fantastic news, especially for our MPs in marginal seats,” a senior government source said.

“We’ve recently seen the Australian National Audit Office identify the trouble we struck dishing out car parks at railway stations in key marginals.

“But the news from GM and Hyundai offers us the chance to pork-barrel not just marginal seats but every seat in the nation.

“Flying cars mean that when it comes to promising car parks, the sky’s the limit. Literally,” the source said.
