Scott Morrison is blasted by Australians over a seemingly innocent selfie of the PM cooking dinner

Western Australians have blasted Scott Morrison online after he shared a seemingly innocent selfie of himself cooking a curry for his family. 

The prime minister posted snaps of his ‘Lamb Rhapsody from Rajasthan’ to his Facebook on Saturday night, giving Australians an inside look at his life outside of office.       

Mr Morrison said the meal was a hit with his daughters, wife and mother, to whom he also paid tribute, writing ‘family gets us through most things’.    

‘It’s been another very busy day as we work to help Victoria get on top of the outbreak as well as working through some issues in WA,’ he wrote.

‘And while we don’t always get there, whenever I’m home on a Saturday night, I try to make it a family curry night.’ 

But Western Australians appeared to take offence to the prime minister’s suggestion there were ‘issues’ with their state.  

The state’s hard border closures have been a contentious topic, with Queensland billionaire Clive Palmer launching a challenge in the High Court, claiming the move is unconstitutional.

Premier Mark McGowan says it is necessary to protect citizens, with his stance garnering overwhelming support from residents. 

The hashtag ‘#istandwithmarkmcgowan’ has begun trending across posts by Western Australians online. 

Many were seen in the comment’s section box of the prime minister’s post, as they demanded Mr Morrison ‘leave the state alone’. 

‘It is great you can spend time with your family. Thanks for keeping Australia safe. Please leave WA alone. I think we are moving forward the right way,’ one person wrote.

‘We don’t have any issues. I certainly miss my family and friends over east, but please prioritise how far we have come because of our earlier lockdown sacrifices and also our unique isolation, which until COVID, has always hurt us,’ another added.

‘Leave WA alone! We are doing just fine exactly as we are,’ a third comment read. 

Someone else said they thought it was ‘sad’ Mr Morrison perceived WA’s desire to ‘be safe’ as an issue. 

‘What issues in WA? We’re fine thanks. Don’t create issues where there are none,’ they wrote.

‘You’re part of our issue in WA. There is nothing for us to work through here,’ a woman added.  

Hundreds of others swarmed to the comments to praise Mr Morrison’s efforts – and for making time to be with his family.  

‘Family is vital! Be blessed, you are doing a great job. So grateful to be in Australia,’ one person wrote. 

‘Well done! You really deserve family time and your family deserve time with you. Keep up the good work,’ another said. 

Mr Morrison addressed the flood of angry comments the next day.

‘Last night I said I had been working on some WA issues,’ he wrote in the comments.

‘For those who commented, you can see from my attached letter to the WA Premier what we were working on. 

‘We will not be continuing our participation in the High Court case. A lot has changed and we have found a better way to deal with this.’

But many Western Australians said it was ‘too late’ for their forgiveness.

‘Probably shouldn’t have supported Clive in the first place. Don’t think the Liberals will have much luck in the next election. I certainly won’t be voting for them,’ one man wrote.

Another said: ‘You should never have supported Clive over WA in the first place.. see you at the next election Scotty from marketing!’

‘Too little too late,’ a third read.
