On May 19th 2016, Bill Shorten’s motorcade pulled off a country road starting a chain of events that led to a head on car accident. As a result Shorten was filmed caring for a lady who had been in one of the cars. I wrote a blog about how the camera’s really should have been turned off: particularly as it’s in an election campaign.
Today, 23rd May 2016, the partner of the woman in the photos released, Shane Lee, commented on my blog. He painted a broader picture of what happened. I emailed Shane and asked for permission to blog his comment. I was particulalry keen to blog his comment due to the local ALP candidate making the statement that Shorten’s “care” for the lady shows his character……Well game on. Let’s have a look at Shorten’s character through the eyes of the woman photographed in the car and the story retold by her partner and the father of the 2 year old boy who was also in the car.
This is the unedited text from Shane. (I only added spaces for paragraphs)
You are dead right about this whole situation Peter.
That was my partner & son in the magna & yes she made a mistake (we mere mortals do that sometimes) but I find it very difficult to comprehend that anyone could give clearance for a cavalcade to pull up in that location, its bloody ludicrous!
The final vehicle in the motorcade of morons not only FAILED TO INDICATE but also DID NOT PULL COMPLETELY OFF THE ROAD & there is footage that clearly shows that & that’s why she swerved, to avoid hitting that imbicile.
As for Mr (I’m so caring) Bill Shorten, he needs a lesson in ethical behaviour in a major way.
In the minutes after the collision, camera crews were bustin their arses to get photos of my partner (which i can understand) but when they started pursueing photos of our son she was not impressed & was not shy in telling them all to take a job involving sex & travel (f%£k off) & stop filming him. So to show his true caring nature Shorten requested that all the crews stopped filming espescially my boy, all except his camera crew who were allowed to continue taking pictures in a discreet manner so my partner wouldn’t erupt again & that’s when most of the touching photos of Billy were taken & in the majority of them my partner isn’t clearly visible because they didn’t want her to spot them.
He is an oppurtunistic arsewipe that took full advantage of a terrible situation to promote himself to the public. Dont get me wrong, I appreciate him & his people taking care of my boy & getting him home but as you said, it would have been far more genuine if ALL CAMERAS STOPPED. Now here’s the kicker, what the cameras didn’t show was the 2yr old little boy crying & calling out to Mr Shorten to let him keep a little plush horse toy that he was given to play with & then had taken straight back off him when the cameras stopped!! WHAT A GREAT MAN HE IS AYE!!
Bill is just like every other oxygen wasting politician that has come & gone before him.
End of Shane’s Comment.
I stand by my original comment. This moment was a moment of humanity not political point scoring. So local ALP candidate, I think we did see Shorten’s character and you may colour me unimpressed by what I and certainly Shane and his family saw.
I am pleased that Shane’s partner and son and the other person involved in the accident are all ok. I do suggest that in the future, political roadside press conferences are better planned.
Anyway, That’s what I think.
