Peter Dutton has today begged his orthopaedic surgeon to replace the plaster cast on his broken right arm, after the Special Envoy For Indigenous Affairs signed it with a controversial Aboriginal saying.
This comes as the Home Affairs Minister misses yet another week of parliament after having surgery on an injured arm, marking the first time in 2018 where he has listened to the advice of doctors.
Peter Duttons’ medical leave has come about suspiciously close to his referral to the High Court over questions about his eligibility to sit in parliament under Section 44 of the constitution, which bans people who profit from the commonwealth government. This follows the investigation into Dutton’s family trust fund, which came to light after Turnbull begged his fixers to dig up dirt on the failed Prime Ministerial challenger in August.
Mr Dutton revealed on Twitter he suffered the injury on Friday, had surgery on the weekend and will see an orthopaedic surgeon again this week.
However, while mending on the couch at his Kingston rental in Canberra city, the Member for Dickson was visited by his three remaining allies in the Liberal Party. Craig Kelly MP, Mitch Fifield and Tony Abbott, more colloquially known as Uncle Tony X to his black brothers and sisters.
After the first two ministers declined Peter Dutton’s tragic offer to sign his cast, Uncle Tony took hold the poska gleefully.
“Too Black Too Strong !” read the former Prime Minister’s throwie.
For Aboriginal Australians, the graffiti is a welcome return of the black nationalist they came to love months ago, after his appointment to the made up Morrison government position.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison did not ask Uncle Tony to be a minister in his new Government, but instead asked him to take on the role of envoy, citing his close association with Aboriginal Australia after growing up in a six bedroom mansion in Sydney’s Northern Beaches and working for the Liberal Party for nearly three decades.
