Truth in advertising




In this Fiona Katauskas cartoon, Peter Dutton stands beside an ad that reads, 'Be safe (and possibly sorry) with the Duttonator COVID19 tracing app! Your data is in his hands!' With a small drawing of Dutton holding a detonator. Scott Morrison looks at the ad saying, 'From a marketing perspective, it still needs a little work...'



Fiona KatauskasFiona Katauskas' work has also appeared in ABC's The Drum, New Matilda, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, The Australian, The Financial Review and Scribe's Best Australian political cartoon anthologies.

Worse than that, Fiona. Its release is being handled by that careful, meticulous and technology-whiz-kid Stuart Robert. Then it might go on to become the Duttonator. Our only hope is that Stuart fluffs it, again.

Morrison must be tone deaf. The problem is not that the people don't trust the government but rather that the government can't be trusted. The problem is the inevitable outcome of the government's record. The solution requires a public acknowledgement by the government of the cause and a demonstrated change in government behaviour.

This proposal is horrifying and deeply depraved. It is totally against respect for humanity, and denies human beings, including chidlren, their rights to an impartial judicial process. Please, everyone, don' accept this inhumanity!
