The internet has caught Kelly O’Dwyer out being liberal ( ) with the truth. She joins a growing list of LNP MP’s who’ve been caught out deliberately misleading the Australian public.
On Friday, O’Dwyer tweeted a picture of herself, fellow LNP mouthpiece Erica Betz and a small business owner who was allegedly shutting his antique shop because of the current government’s policies.
Here’s her initial tweet:
A picture says a thousand words http://twitpic.com/9m6no4
And here is the photo that accompanied the tweet:
The picture speaks for itself. A business having a “Thanks To Julia Closing Down Sale”.
O’Dwyer then posted a follow up tweet:
Business downsizes from 2 shops to 1. reduces staff from 3 to 0. Owner unhappy with Gillard Gov policy IR, Super and Carbon Tax
O’Dwyer has now joined fellow Liberal Party member, Julie Bishop who also got caught lying by Twitter users (see Julie Bishop Gets Caught Trying To Rewrite History on Twitter).
Twitter user @elliotg78 discovered that the business isn’t closing down at all. He did this by simply checking the businesses website where the following was posted:
Recently my original showroom, three doors down (1425 Malvern Road), became available again and as I hold the lease I’ve stocked it until relet.
Over the last four years I’ve been wanting to open another shop but not in Malvern as the mix of industrial, retro, glass and unusual items doesn’t quite fit this area.
I have called it Shop2 and will until further notice.
Shop2 is closing down as most stock is sold and now subletting, so having a clearance sale! (source: Allpress Antiques)
So, the business is not shutting down at all. It’s moving 3 shops down (from 1419 Malvern Rd, Malvern to 1425 Malvern Rd). As the premises at 1419 had been sublet, they were having a clearance sale. This sale had nothing at all to do with any government policies.
After the truth had come out, the business owner claimed it was “black humour”. Maybe, but why pose for a photo with Liberal Party members then? We won’t hold our breath waiting for an answer to that one.
Don’t worry though, I’m sure when they think that the issue has died down, they will be back sprouting their familiar bullshit.
Sadly for them though, the internet has a long memory. Far longer than that of the dweebs that would actually vote for either of these morons and their colleagues.
