Treasurer Scott Morrison bought a blackened piece of his soul into question time yesterday, in a visual stunt designed to fluster the Opposition.
Mr Morrison usually keeps his soul in a jar in his parliamentary office, but decided to bring it along on Thursday to see what kind of reaction he would get.
Opposition and crossbench MPs were visibly shaken when they realised what the Treasurer was holding, with some describing it as the most horrific object they had ever seen.
“I’d heard Scott Morrison had a soul, but I didn’t really believe it until I saw it up close,” one MP said. “He was just waving it around and laughing. It was fucking brutal”. Others say small flakes of his soul were seen falling onto the floor of the House.
It is the first time Mr Morrison has been seen with his soul this year.
