BBQ conspiracy

The photo which sparked the conspiracy.

Gembrook MP Brad Battin has roasted Dan Andrews on social media over an alleged staged photo of the Victorian Premier and Federal Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese.

The photo, which was posted by Mr Albanese on 27 November was captioned, “Great to catch up with my friend and former housemate Dan Andrews, who cooks a great bbq.“

Mr Battin posted a screenshot of the image, claiming it was a set up.

“I know this isn’t the biggest issue in the world. But if you want to be normal, just be normal, don’t fake it,“ he told the Gazette.

“It frustrates me those staged photos- the barbeque is not lit. The steaks have been cooked in a pan, there’s no lines on them.

“80 to 90 per cent of the comments on my post said he was a goose.“

It remains unclear if the photo was staged or not.
