Grace Tame says Scott Morrison had the ambitions of Voldemort with the brains of Peter Griffin

Grace Tame has absolutely rinsed Scott Morrison, claiming he had the ambitions of the Dark Lord with the intelligence of Peter Griffin.

During her appearance on Q&A, the 2021 Australian of the Year didn’t hold back her thoughts on the former Prime Minister.

“The gaslighting, the dishonesty, was another level that we witnessed,” Tame said.

However, she didn’t stop there.

Tame went on to compare him to Harry Potter’s arch nemesis and the Family Guy patriarch.

She said: “He wasn’t even a good enough villain – he had the ambitions of Voldemort with the brains of Peter Griffin.”

She added: “It’s very important that we have people in positions of power that we can trust.

“It was a disgrace – we need better than that.”

We're all getting flashbacks of Tame hurling major side eye to Mr Morrison right about now.

The 28-year-old’s remarks come after the former Prime Minister became the first to be censured by the Federal Parliament for appointing himself to five ministerial portfolios while in power.

During this time, Mr Morrison famously appointed himself Health, Finance, Home Affairs and Industry, Energy and Resources, Science, and Treasury Minister.

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese will move legislation to require the appointment of a minister is made public following the report looking into Mr Morrison’s secret ministries, which is being conducted by former High Court Justice Virginia Bell.

ABC News reported the motion passed with 86 votes to 50 with the support of the government, crossbenchers and Liberal MP Bridget Archer.

However, the shadow Home Affairs Minister, Karen Andrews, who demanded Morrison quit parliament following the controversy, was forced to abstain from voting.

Unsurprisingly the Liberals and the Nationals opposed the censure, citing the former leader had already been reprimanded.

The Guardian reported that the Leader of the House, Tony Burke said Mr Morrison ultimately failed ‘the House of Representatives, the Australian people and the cabinet, which undermined responsible government and eroded public trust in Australia’s democracy’.

He added: “The concept that the parliament knows who has which job is essential to responsible government.

"You cannot have responsible government if you do not know what people are responsible for, and for two years we did not know. For two years, the ministers themselves did not know."

The Member of Cook will face no legal consequences.
