Alice Workman – The Australian – Thursday 13 August 2020
“I don’t think Victorians would have been very pleased to hear Mike Baird’s ‘Leave Britney Alone’ moment with Dan Andrews,”millennial Liberal senator James Paterson proclaimed.
For Baby Boomers, Leave Britney Alone was a viral video from the mid-2000s where an uberfan asked the media to back off from troubled pop star Britney Spears. But on Baird.
The former NSW Liberal premier told people to lay off the current Labor Premier in a lengthy Facebook post.
“(It) sounds exactly like an incestuous political class making special pleasing for each other to protect them from that scrutiny,” Paterson told Sky News.
“The last thing they want to think is that people from across the aisle, from different political parties, are so close and so matey that they have more in common with each other than they do with the constituents they’re actually supposed to represent and that they’re part of this big bipartisan protection racket. It is outrageous.”
