Proof that politicians probably shouldn’t dance in public. Ever. 30

Spare a thought for our poor politicians, who not only have to cope with the state of Australia in the 21st century but also have to put up with the fact that their every move is captured on some kind of digital device and shared indiscriminately.

This is certainly the case for Labor leader Bill Shorten who was on tour in the tiny island nation of Kiribati.

He was there to discuss climate change with the leaders of a country that will be underwater thanks to sea level rises in the coming decades, but he and Tanya Plibersek found time to join in some traditional festivities.

While many of us may applaud his efforts to match the locals’ dancing style, others have suggested that his twirly-shuffley dance might be as good as it gets for Bill.

This video has been shared widely and the comments have not been kind…

Perhaps Mr Shorten’s next move might be a stint on Dancing With The Stars a la Pauline Hanson.

What do you make of Bill Shorten’s dancing? Thumbs up or thumbs down?

  1. I don’t know he seems to be doing what everyone else is doing. I would hate anyone to see me dance.

  2. I thought it was great I saw a clip on the tv of him shaking his tail feather and Tanya dancing around too, it makes them look more human and you could tell they were enjoying it, it was not faked

  3. At least he was outside having fun and not dancing on Marble Tables in the PM’s Office and smashing them

  4. Rubbish at dancing, rubbish politician. But absolute super star at creaming off unions members dues. Corrupt and criminal bastard.

    • And it sounds like you would be personally well acquainted with rubbish! Probably at LNP functions.

    • It doesn’t so much sounds like, but it’s quite clear you’re another one of those corrupt and criminal unionist with your ALP ticket who is also on the take. Have I struck a nerve?
