Coronavirus: Scott Morrison was a voice of calm amid the chaos

"Lin McGuffog" (2020-08-10)


Scott Morrison stepped up to the podium and was the voice of calm and clarity that a deeply worried nation needed.

Amid the coronavirus chaos engulfing the world, the Prime Minster emerged from his Parliament House office at 9am and told Australians how he plans to keep them safe.

It was the most important speech of his life.

Political jargon was replaced as he looked directly at the camera and frankly told the nation that life Down Under is about to change dramatically.

'Life is changing in Australia, as it is changing all around the world,' Mr Morrison said.

He then announced drastic new measures to slow the virus, including banning overseas travel and limiting non-essential gatherings.

And, crucially, he answered the question on every Australian's mind: How long will this go on? 

'We are looking at a situation of at least six months for how we deal with this,' he said. 

It was an admission that went straight to the point and was, importantly, 바카라 devoid of spin.

Gone was the defensive 'Scotty from Marketing' caught so terribly flat-footed during the bushfire crisis.
