This Political Meme About The Australian Countryside Is Actually Set In Britain


Posted on

Government MP Bert van Manen recently posted on Twitter this touching social media content, apparently showing an old timey couple taking a selfie in the Australian countryside.


We then asked van Manen's office whether it was aware the Australian countryside image was actually from the UK.

A spokesperson said they got the meme from the "Ministerial Support Office", which is the fancy name given to the federal government's crack meme team.
