MUM’S THE WORD

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

PRIME Min­is­ter Scott Mor­ri­son may have been the star guest at the Surry Hills Po­lice and Com­mu­nity Gala Ball, but it was his par­ents who stole the show. When MC Ben Ford­ham asked Mar­ion Mor­ri­son about her son’s as­cen­dancy to the top job, she re­vealed she was as sur­prised as the rest of us. “I went into a state of shock … the first we heard he was even stand­ing was when we saw it on the tele­vi­sion,” Mrs Mor­ri­son said on Fri­day night at the SCG. Ford­ham then said “he could have called his mum”, to which she replied: “No, no, no … he doesn’t call his mum for ad­vice.” Mor­ri­son’s proud dad John, a for­mer po­lice com­man­der, was also taken aback by the events in Au­gust. “We thought it would hap­pen one day but cir­cum­stances were changed, as they do in pol­i­tics, and all of a sud­den we’ve got a Prime Min­is­ter in the fam­ily,” Mr

Mor­ri­son Sr said.
