Remorseful Scott Morrison Says He Is Willing To Accept Responsibility For Brisbane’s Successful Olympics Bid

Admitting that he regrets not confronting the issue earlier, a repentant Scott Morrison says he is now willing to accept that he, and he alone, is responsible for Brisbane’s successful bid for the 2032 Olympic Games.

“This one’s on me. Not the bid committee, not the Queensland Premier. I have to own this,” the Prime Minister said in what appeared to be a cathartic admission.

“When you’re in the top job, there comes a time when you have to put your hand up and say, ‘I was responsible for that incredible win that will bring international investment and attention to Australia and totally reshape the nation’s third largest city. I need to be accountable for the positive media attention that results from an international victory like this’.

“That’s the long and short of it. The fact is, this is a historic day, not just for Brisbane and Queensland, but the entire country. And I have to take responsibility for that”.

He said the fact that he wasn’t directly involved in the bid in any way was irrelevant. “That’s what accountability means. I may not have been at any of the meetings or provided any support along the way. But that’s not the point. The point is, as the leader, you’re responsible. You take the good with the good”.

Mr Morrison said his biggest regret was not taking responsibility earlier.

Brisbane 2032 Olympics To Welcome Athletes From Countries Right Across The Australia/New Zealand Travel Bubble

Brisbane 2032 Olympics To Welcome Athletes From Countries Right Across The Australia/New Zealand Travel Bubble

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk says the 2032 Brisbane Olympics – confirmed yesterday – will be a chance to welcome people from the entire Australasian region, provided the border with New Zealand is open at that particular time.

“This is our chance to open our arms to people from every corner of the travel bubble likely to still be in place by 2032,” Palaszczuk said.

“We will be welcoming athletes from far flung places like Auckland, Wellington, Melbourne, Hobart, Sydney – if the border is open by then – Cairns, Perth. Actually, probably not Perth, who are we kidding”.

She said, all going well, athletes from Singapore may also be able to compete. “The Olympic spirt knows no boundaries. But of course I mean that in a strictly metaphorical sense. In reality, the chances of us having our borders opened by 2032 are slim to fuck all”.
