Scott Morrison Tells Australians: ‘We Need To Live Within Your Means’

Travelling business class to Canberra every week is fucking expensive, the Treasurer has reminded the nation.

“Those chauffeured cars to the airport don’t pay for themselves. You do,” Mr Morrison said. “So I think we’re going to have to tighten our belts a bit. And by we I mean you”.

He said the price of helicopter charters had tripled in the last five years alone. “So clearly we’re going to have to be very careful about spending in areas such as education for your child”.

He reminded Australians that holidays weren’t cheap, particularly for politicians with large families. “All I’m saying is, just think about that next time you ask for a handout”.
