Grace Tame has launched another attack on Scott Morrison, claiming he is more interested in ‘maintaining power’ than ‘running the country’.

The former Australian of the Year took the shot at the prime minister while acting as a guest on an Adelaide Writer’s Week panel on Wednesday, accusing him of being ‘unauthentic’.

‘We’ve found certain people and groups are more concerned with maintaining power and control than running the country,’ she said.

‘I don’t want that to be the case. That’s the sad truth.’

Tame, who infamously scowled at Mr Morrison during a luncheon for her final duties as Australian of the Year, rolled her eyes when asked about working with his government. 

The advocate for survivors of sexual assault said her disagreements with the PM are not politically motivated and confirmed she was open to working with the Liberals as well as Labor. 

‘I do want to work with people on all sides — I’m actually apolitical — and I believe in putting differences aside in the spirit of progress … especially when it comes to the abuse of children,’ Tame said, who described herself as ‘politically naive’.

‘But a certain person is not authentic to say the least.’

She pointed to her mouth and feigned vomiting when asked a question about Harvey Weinstein and the origins of the #MeToo movement.

Tame then told the hundreds in attendance about the first time she confronted her abuser, just days before she went to police with the allegations.

She told the man he was ‘pure evil’ and a ‘monster’ in an explosion of emotion. 

‘I pointed finger at him, crying my eyes out. I started yelling and screaming and I told him what I thought for the first time,’ Tame said, before taking another shot at Mr Morrison.

‘I was terrified when I did this but… this (story) is what I remember whenever I think I can’t do something — like frown at the Prime Minister.

‘My fear of upsetting the applecart died that day and it sure as hell died publicly standing next to Scott Morrison.’
