Labor’s chances of winning this year’s federal election rest largely on destroying Scott Morrison’s character and the most devastating weapon has come from within, according to Nine political editor Chris Uhlmann.

ALP state premiers were out in force this week with on-script attacks on the Prime Minister’s credibility, the latest in months of choreographed hits aimed at focusing the news cycle on Mr Morrison’s character.

“It’s an assassination,” Uhlmann told the On The Trail: Election 2022 podcast.

“It’s a cartoon of the man’s character.”

This has been a campaign by the Labor Party because in order to beat the Coalition – given the Prime Minster has been since the last election the key salesman for him team, in fact the only salesman for his team – they have to kill Mr Morrison politically.

“That’s what they set out to do a year or so ago, and they’ve had plenty of ammunition to help them along the way, from fires, through floods, through COVID,” Uhlmann said.

“A lot of that, by the way, (has been) overblown.”

But Uhlmann, one of the best long-term thinkers in Canberra, said unflattering character assessments from Coalition colleagues such as Concetta Fierravanti-Wells, Barnaby Joyce and Gladys Berejiklian in recent times presented Labor with its most effective tool.

“The line that I think is devastating for the Labor Party now is, ‘It’s the people who know Scott Morrison best who are making these complaints about him,'” he told the podcast.
