Prime Minister Scott Morrison worked in marketing for many years before he entered parliament in 2007 so it’s no surprise he comes across as a used car salesman when he announces new government spending, programs, and initiatives. But he has a history of stabbing Liberal Party competitors in the back on a regular basis with the most extreme being the leaking of lies to win the Liberal Party pre-selection for the seat of Cook in 2007 with the assistance of the Labor Party.

Scott Morrison’s political background
Scott Morrison was a power broker and former state director (2000 to 2004) of the NSW Liberal Party and was elected to Parliament in 2007.
In September 2008, Morrison was appointed to Malcolm Turnbull’s coalition front bench as shadow minister for housing and local government.
In December 2009, after Tony Abbott outed Malcolm Turnbull as Opposition Leader, Morrison became shadow minister for immigration and citizenship coming into the shadow cabinet for the first time. The promotion suggests that Scott Morrison helped Tony Abbott roll Malcolm Turnbull.
In September 2015 Malcolm Turnbull challenged and defeated Tony Abbott for the Prime Ministership. Scott Morrison was promoted to Treasurer which points to Scott Morrison stabbing Tony Abbott in the back in a deal with Turnbull.
In August 2018, after a long and sustained effort to destabilize his government by members of his own party, Malcolm Turnbull lost the Prime Ministership. In a subsequent ballot process Scott Morrison was elected Prime Minister. All the evidence suggests that Morrison again had a hand in the outing of Malcolm Turnbull which if it is the case shows Morrison as being a regular turncoat.
Morrison’s dirty deal to get rid of competitor Michael Towke
Scott Morrison has a history of being involved in dirty election campaigns and his bid to be preselected by the Liberal Party for the 2007 election is regarded as one of the dirtiest in-house Liberal Party brawls. It was reported in 2018:
