“Vote #1 Chloe Shorten’s Husband”: ‘The Feed’ Has Created The Perfect Labor Campaign Strategy

"I would vote for her... next of kin."

The Feed has come up with the perfect election strategy for Bill Shorten

Behind every great man is a great woman. Or at least, that seems to be the thinking of Bill Shorten’s new media team, who’ve decided that the best way to get the Labor leader elected is to focus on his wife instead.

In their latest sketch for The Feed, PR whiz kids Vic Zerbst and Jenna Owen have abruptly changed allegiances, ditching ScoMo and his daggy dad hat in favour of Bill Shorten, aka Chloe Shorten’s husband.

The pair come up with the idea of focusing on Chloe after realising that Bill’s name literally puts them to sleep.

“It’s like my body’s rejecting it,” says Zerbst.

Chloe, on the other hand, makes her feel “warm and safe”.

“I’m looking at her and I’m like yes, I would vote for her… next of kin,” she says.

“Vote #1 Chloe Shorten… ‘s husband,” Owen agrees.
