Victorian Premier John Brumby is refusing to concede defeat after losing the popular vote and his majority in the Legislative Assembly last night.
Friends and colleagues have urged Deputy Premier Rob Hulls not to show Brumby the awesome Downfall parody he threw together last night.
Mr Hulls had previously been confident that the premier would enjoy seeing himself portrayed as a Hitler-like figure unable to grasp that his leadership was at an end.
The deputy premier, who also serves as attorney-general, used iMovie to cast himself as Field Marshal Wilhelm Keitel and Melbourne MP Bronwyn Pike as Traudl Junge.
As of 11.00am this morning, no videos have been uploaded to the account rjhulls57. A spokesman for Mr Hulls says that while the deputy premier is confident that the video is funny and topical, he will not be proceeding with it “at the present time”.
Liberal sources say that by continuing to produce Downfall parodies, Labor has shown itself to be out of touch because the internet has moved on in the past two years. State director Tony Nutt told The Daily Grind that he snuck up behind Labor and took the sount-east Melbourne seat of Carrum from three-term Labor MP Jenny Lindell. “And I was like ‘Dude, you have no Carrum!’.”
