Duncan Storrar, the star audience member from last night’s Q&A, has been launched into internet folk hero status after people sympathetic to his plight and equally as pissed at the Government‘s lopsided tax cuts in the budget took to the #IStandWithDuncan hashtag in droves to express their solidarity.
Those who haven’t known disadvantage, struggle or suffering are numb to it. #istandwithduncan

Still gobsmacked over a man struggling to raise his kids being told he should be grateful a cafe is getting a $6k toaster #istandwithduncan

Clearly, the pollies are out of touch. We need a parliament which is more representative of all walks, not just business #istandwithduncan

#istandwithduncan because his disadvantage – no fault of his own – is already being passed on to his kids.

#istandwithduncan Most people know people like Duncan. Very few know people with $6000 toasters.
