A former prime minister immortalized the “life was not easy” line.
In this horrible time of coronavirus, it certainly applies to our political leaders, both state and federal.
When Malcolm Fraser uttered this line, he did not specifically mention himself or other politicians.
However, at present this feeling of the highest office of the political party is appropriate.
So far, Scott Morrison has been acquitted of the coronavirus infection and the economic devastation it has caused.
With him, the Prime Ministers deserve credit for the role they have played in the National Cabinet
Australia has the best response in the world about highly contagious coronavirus.
If they are thought to have made a mistake, none of them are immune to harsh criticism.
Let’s start with Mr. Morrison’s decision to walk last Saturday night, dressed in a Cronulla Sharks cap and scarf.

Some commentators saw images that immediately proved to be an inspiration across social media that the Prime Minister was showing leadership and loyalty.
The Panthers humiliated his “Sharkis” 56 56-24 even though he held it to the end.
Even being able to suck on beer was a sign that a prime minister was making signs of a job in a bar.
But one aspect of his own backbenchers in Victoria was incredible.
“I’ve been fooled” was the incredible response.
There was a prime minister here who announced on Friday that “we are all Victorians” that what five million Victorians cannot do is limited by a three-step lockdown rehabilitation.
This is another example of Mr Morrison’s “not reading the house”, as Krelin Overington did word-of-mouth in Australia.
The “house” is the whole nation of which he is the elected leader.
The Shire, as Cronulla calls conversation, is a small part of it.
Overington writes, “Leadership means empathy. It means solidarity with the victims. “
On Friday, Mr. Morrison announced he would take some time off the camera to be with his wife and children.
Former senator and broadcaster Darren Hinch tweeted that Mr Morrison was entitled to stay with his kids “but going to football was a Hawaii-sized PR mistake” – referring to his overseas vacation at the height of the summer bushfire contraction.
Why he didn’t like to sit at home and watch the game on TV advises his political opponent that he is more interested in providing images for “business” whose votes never stay away from his thoughts.
Publicly, Labor leader Anthony Albanese did not buy – saying “it was a matter” for Mr Morrison.
But Victoria’s premier wife, Daniel Andrews, tweeted a picture of her husband on Saturday night with the caption, “This guy isn’t stopping. Thanks to everyone who’s doing the right thing. We’re together at #istandwithdan.”
Mr Andrews, like his New South Wales opponent Gladys Berezclian, has been expelled in parts of the media and social media for failing to control the virus.
Mrs. Berezklian was in the frame for the cruise ship Ruby Princess and her passengers were allowed to make that tragic contribution to spreading the infection across the country.
Mr Andrews is now in the spotlight for his failure to manage the Hotel Quarantine in Melbourne.
The Prime Minister has taken on the role of “leader of the government and the state” and, like Mrs. Bereziklian, has conducted judicial investigations into what went wrong.
In both cases, they have become scapegoats for human frustration and fear.
Mrs. Berezklien must dream about the possibility of the Crossroads Hotel outbreak in Kasula becoming a new Ruby Princess.
They deserve condemnation for the way Queensland’s Anatasia Palaskukuk is being “dictatorial” and even worse that they are going over these leaders, the way they attack ugly.
Mistakes must have been made and will be made – Mr. Morrison’s exit from football was by no means a bad thing, but the implementation we see from the President of the United States is far from a denial and a deliberate denial of ignorance.
