A quick-thinking heckler has revealed how she trapped Prime Minister Scott Morrison in a now-viral video where she branded him the worst PM in history. 

Mother-of-four Chantelle Howlett, 34, spotted the PM as he arrived unannounced at her local Edgeworth Tavern pub in Newcastle, NSW, on Wednesday night. 

The Labor supporter brazenly went up and asked for a selfie pic with him and he readily agreed. 

But while he beamed for the camera, seemingly thinking she was taking a happy snap, a smiling Ms Howlett said: ‘Congratulations on being the worst Prime Minister we’ve ever had…’

The comment wiped the smile from the PM’s face before he grimaced and turned away.

Video of the moment was posted on Twitter shortly afterwards with the caption ‘Just got to give Slomo my sincerest congratulations’ with hashtags #ScottyTheGaslighter and #AlboForPM.

The video went viral and was liked almost 6,000 times and retweeted almost 2,000 times, and was rebroadcast widely on breakfast television shows. 

Now Ms Howlett, an English teacher who also runs an online indigenous fashion brand, has revealed the video was a spur of the moment idea.

‘I’m kicking myself for not having a plan in place for this situation and it’s the best I could do on short notice,’ she revealed today. 

She said the PM’s mood changed instantly once he realised he’d been punked by the local.

‘He said thanks and then processed what I said and lost his smirk and turned his back on me,’ she tweeted.

She added: ‘I never thought I’d get the chance to meet him. Dreams do come true.’ 

The PM was later confronted by an angry pensioner in the same pub who angrily berated him over his previous election promises.

‘Listen to me for a change,’ he blasted. ‘You can have a million dollar house, $250,000 in the bank and franking credits but a disability pensioner can’t have an income.

‘You’ve also been immigration minister. I’ve got a partner I’ve been with six-and-a-half years and I’ve got a right as an Australian to choose who my partner should be.

‘We’ve been to the tribunal twice and won on both occasions. That was 14 months ago. Why can’t I have a partner?

‘You know another promise you made. You were going to have an integrity commission.

‘You better f***ing do something. I’m sick of your bull****.’

The man was later escorted away but on Thursday the PM insisted his staff had met with ‘Ray’ afterwards. 

‘It’s a complicated case and we’ll assist with that,’ he said. ‘I like hearing from people and I hear from people all the time.’
