Aussie MP Rips Off Michael Douglas Movie Speech


Noel Gallagher was fond of repeating the line ‘talent borrows, genius steals’ during his Oasis heyday, but we’re guessing Australian politician Anthony Albanese won't be endorsing such a maxim anytime soon.

The beleaguered Transport Minister has been caught passing off a speech Michael Douglas delivered in his 1995 film, The American President, as his own. Word for word. Verbatim.

Unfortunately, in attempting to criticise Liberal politician Tony Abbott, the Labor MP, he provoked the ire of a high-ranking Liberal who also happened to be a fan of the so-so hit.

In retaliation the Liberals released this video comparing the two speeches side-by-side. We bet Albanese’s scriptwriter is making himself scarce at the moment.
