ONE of Australia’s richest people has used Twitter to label Scott Morrison’s “fair dinkum power” as “bulls—” and challenged the PM to come up with a proper energy policy.
Mike Cannon-Brookes, co-founder of tech darling Atlassian whose holding in the company is worth several billion dollars, took to social media this afternoon to directly criticise Mr Morrison’s energy policy.
The PM has started using the term “fair dinkum power” to describe dispatchable power. It has sparked accusations he is using the term as code for coal-fired power stations.
He has also released a short video explaining his actions to reduce power prices, a video that seemed to anger the Atlassian boss.
Mr Cannon-Brookes, who was appointed earlier this year to a Government-funded board to develop an Australian national brand, said the PM was not being upfront with voters.
