Musician/songwriter and well known as the front person for ‘Rocky and The Two Bob Millionaires’, Rocky Dabscheck has a bit of fun with Malcolm Turnbull on the campaign trail. 

 

Monday — M.T. at a hospital

 

M.T. …… “There’s never been a more exciting time to be diagnosed with a serious illness. You are creating jobs and growth for our health sector.”

 

Tuesday — M.T. at a nursing home

 

M.T. ……. “There’s never been a more exciting time to be so old, frail and decrepit that you can’t look after yourself. You are creating jobs and growth for our aged care sector.”

 

Wednesday — M.T. on Manus Island

 

M.T. …….“There’s never been a more exciting time to be an asylum seeker in one of our detention centres. You are creating jobs and growth for our border protection sector.”

 

Thursday — M.T. at a Centrelink office

 

M.T.  …….  “There’s never been a more exciting time to be unemployed. You are creating jobs and growth for our employment placement sector; and our public servants.”

 

Friday — M.T. bumping into ex P.M. Abbott somewhere in Sydney on the campaign trail

 

M.T.  …….  “There’s never been a more exciting time to be an ex P.M. You are creating jobs and growth for our logging industry, providing paper for all the books published about your demise."

 

Saturday — M.T. at an outback Indigenous settlement

 

M.T. ………  "There’s never been a more exciting time to be an Indigenous Australian. Think of the jobs and growth you first Australians are creating for many white people via our intervention policy.”

 

It could be so much more exciting if I 

didn't have to restrain myself!

Sunday — M.T. relaxing in a trendy café in his electorate, sipping on a latte as he watches Australia play France in a soccer friendly

M.T. ……..

There’s never been a more exciting time to have a coffee and pastry, read the Sunday papers and watch the Socceroos. Think of the jobs people like me create for small business owners.

Oh, sorry. Rubbish umpire! Did you see that? Hand ball. The French defender deliberately handled it. Pay the penalty! Pay the penalty you mongrel. I bet the umpire’s name is De Gaulle or something like that. Don’t you believe in penalties you creep!

Sorry. I tend to get a bit emotional when our national teams are playing.

Interviewer…….  “That’s OK. Well Prime Minister. How do you think the campaign is going?"

M.T. ……… 

“Wonderful. There’s never been a more exciting time to say “ jobs and growth,’ and I’ve been able to say “ jobs and growth’ ad nauseam all week. I’m very excited."
