May 2, 2019 5:15 am
An Australian politician has been mocked on social media after he posted a reply to his own Facebook post saying how “fantastic” he was.
Angus Taylor, a Liberal MP for Campbelltown and energy minister, posted a Facebook video on Monday announcing 1,000 extra parking spaces at railway stations in New South Wales.
The news has been welcomed by many people on Facebook, but some eagle-eyed users spotted that Mr Taylor had praised himself from his own social media account.
Mr Taylor replied to the post, saying: “Fantastic. Great move. Well done Angus.”
His team quickly deleted his self-congratulatory comment.
