Grace Tame compares Scott Morrison to Voldemort in extraordinary rant on ABC Q&A 

Grace Tame issues her most BRUTAL one-liner on Scott Morrison ever as she compares him to bumbling Family Guy character on Q&A -and that was nowhere near the end of her rant

  • The outspoken sexual abuse activist appeared on ABC’s Q&A on Thursday night
  • She took aim at ex PM Scott Morrison over the secret portfolios scandal
  • Ms Tame said she would not enter politics and claimed her abuser still stalks her

Grace Tame has brutally mocked Scott Morrison calling him ‘Voldemort with the brains of Peter Griffin’ before going on an extraordinary rant about the ex-PM

The advocate for sexual abuse survivors let loose on Thursday’s episode of Q&A, when asked about his decision to secretly seize control of several ministerial portfolios during the pandemic – a move that led him to be censored by Parliament on Wednesday.

‘The gaslighting, the dishonesty, was another level that we witnessed,’ Ms Tame said.

‘He wasn’t even a good enough villain. He had the ambitions of Voldemort with the brains of Peter Griffin.’

Voldemort was the evil villain from the Harry Potter series of books and movies, while Griffin is the clueless dad in the cartoon series Family Guy. 

Grace Tame was asked to comment on Mr Morrison’s widely unpopular decision to secretly seize control of several portfolios during the pandemic – and she did not hold back (pictured together at an Australia Day function in 2022)

She also labelled Mr Morrison’s actions a ‘disgrace’.

‘It’s very important that we have people in positions of power that we can trust,’ she added.

‘It was a disgrace. We need better than that.’

Morrison became the first ex-prime minister to be censured by federal parliament after a motion against him for secretly appointing himself health, finance, treasury, home affairs and industry, science, energy and resources minister. 

During his time in power Mr Morrison named Ms Tame the 2021 Australian of the Year but the relationship quickly soured with the Tasmanian activist famously scowling at him during a photo at an Australia Day function in January. 

When a Q&A audience member complained that Mr Morrison faced no real consequences for unliterally taking control of several ministries, Ms Tame chipped in joking that she ‘censured him with my face’.

During the programme, Ms Tame also made the stunning claim she has considered stepping away from her public life.

Grace Tame also made a shocking claim on Q&A about the teacher who sexually abused her when she was a school student in Hobart, saying he had continued to harass her this year

‘I’ll be honest with you .. yes I do [think about stopping].. I’ve had a really hard 24 hours, this morning I was meeting with the Department of Public Prosecutions [because] the child sex offender who abused me he has been menacing and harassing me all this year, she said.

‘He hasn’t really stopped for last 12 years, behind the scenes.’

Nicolaas Bester was a 58-year-old teacher at St Michael’s Collegiate School, an Anglican girls school in Hobart, when he groomed and abused Ms Tame.

In 2011, the maths teacher was sentenced to two years and 10 months behind bars after pleading guilty to ‘maintaining a relationship with a young person under 17’ and possession of child exploitation material.

Bester served one year and nine months in jail and went on to complain his conviction had cost him ‘everything’ including his reputation in the community.
