Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has courageously exposed his head and arms on public transport today out of a bulletproof vest, making them highly vulnerable to African gangs.

Turnbull told reporters African gangs were of “great concern” with some “even running riot on the AFL football field on the weekend at the Rooster’s game”.

“Can I just say, I had an economic plan to get in that tram, make two stops, and then get out alive.”

He said he wore the bulletproof vest as a precautionary measure as he “didn’t want to die during this great time to be alive”.

Turnbull says he will be providing tax cuts to businesses manufacturing bulletproof vests.

“We’ll give extra tax cuts for companies that can protect my face as well.”
