In breaking news, Australia has once again dispatched a sitting Prime Minister. In a shocking development out of Canberra, novice backbencher Shacinda Schmarden has successfully challenged former-PM Scott Morrison for the leadership of the Liberal National Party.
Ms Schmarden will become Australia’s 31st Prime Minister and 7th in the last 12 years. She is only the second female to hold the job.
‘I am very excited to lead the country, be woke and have babies,’ Prime Minister Schmarden said in her first press conference from Parliament House.
However, the Schmarden Government has only just begun and already finds itself plagued by scandal. Several commentators have noted that Ms Schmarden bares a stunning resemblance to Scott Morrison.
‘Like, it’s clearly just Scott Morrison in bad drag,’ Annabelle Crabbe wrote in an online ABC article entitled ‘Look What The Parliament Dragged In, Also How Good Are Custard Tarts.’
Even Andrew Bolt, an often reliable ally of the Coalition, was willing to entertain the conspiracy. ‘I’m not going to lie, this is a fairly atrocious attempt to win over voters by a person who is, and I will stress this again, very clearly ScoMo in a wig and a dress.
The rumours were only fuelled by revelations that Mr Morrison was spotted at The Beat Megaclub on Friday evening, holding a notebook and pen whilst talk intensely with Ashley Grove, a famed local Queen.
The Government has attempted to get on with the job of governing, with the new Prime Minister announcing a $5 million funding package for Waleed Aly and PedestrianTV.
‘He doesn’t even look hot. If he looked hot I’d all for it,’ said Fraser Anning.
The Prime Minister has begun naming her Cabinet and recently appointed her first Chief of Staff, RuPaul Keating.
