Prime Minister Scott Morrison says he is 100% committed to the Liberal Party’s base and has allocated extra resources to help find it.
In a speech to media this morning, Mr Morrison said the party’s base was not an imaginary concept invented by Sky News presenters who didn’t understand the difference between the US and Australian electoral systems, and was in fact a real and identifiable group of people. “It’s real, it’s there, and we’re going to find it,” he said.
Previous attempts to find the base – including on a bus trip through rural Queensland, and more recently during an election campaign in Victoria – have failed.
Morrison is hopeful that the trip to Mars will be more successful.
