So when Morrison and others assert that Labor is not interested in our national security remember it was Morrison that refused to allow the House of Reps to vote on that legislation.

Very telling that during the adjournment debate when Tanya Plibersek was talking there was not one Government frontbencher to be seen.

The time has come for Morrison to go to the GG and say he is not capable of running the Australian government and there needs to be an election.


We're all aghast at that little revelation Sean...the man is a cad and a bounder...how dare he? As for Tanya...maybe she's just a boring speaker...did the Labor side clear the benches as well? :woohoo:


BC the majority were there until the last 5 minutes of the house adjourning.

Okay for your benefit let me put it succinctly: Morrison chose to save his bacon and his embarrassment rather than to allow the House of Reps sitting later. And there are many examples where the House of Reps has sat long in to the night and the following day.

Let's not forget they also cancelled a day's session in the House of Reps during the roll of Turnbull.

We should have a lot of gymnast available to represent Australia in the 2020 Olympics. On the one hand Morrison is saying that he has moved the children from Nauru and CONTEMPORANEOUSLY that is not a reason for the boats to start (because the Liberals removed the kids from Nauru) and a reason for the boats to start (because of Labor).

Whenever a Liberal starts talking about how they stopped the boats, ask them if the Liberal Party supported the "Malaysian solution". When they say no, ask them why the Liberal Party chose to support the people smugglers.

The 2019 Federal election is looming as the most important election since 1972. This election will signal whether the RWNJs in the Liberal Party continue to frustrate the need to address climate change or we will have sensible transition to renewables. Where base, racist politicking is no longer considered acceptable.

As an aside it is interesting to see that the person who was responsible for costing Victorians over $1 billion with the cancelled East-West link is now the leader of the Liberal Party. O'Brien signed a side letter just prior to going into caretaker mode knowing that Labor Party did not support the East-West link and Labor could win the 2014 election. The decision to select O'Brien will ensure that Labor will win the next Victorian state election.

Thanks GTR. That might mean that the Liberals might have more women (4) than there are Davids (3).

Paul Murray (Sky News) you show just how removed from reality> With the greatest of respect I suggest you find out what Tele health is and then pull your head in.

For the Sky News after dark commentary team I sincerely trust you don't go to any doctors for medical treatment after their maligning of Médecins Sans Frontières and the medical fraternity in Australia.

What a stark difference between how the Speaker of the House of Commons performs and speakers like Bronwyn Bishop in our House of Representatives. There was also a stark contrast between Scott Morrison closing down Parliament to avoid scrutiny compared to May facing several hours of questions from both her back bench, her DUP coalition partner and opposition parties. But to be fair and balanced there were some similarities between May and Morrison: both chose to delay a vote rather than be defeated in a vote.

Whilst it is sustainable to argue that Liberal Party policies are good (and no I don't agree with them) but what is not sustainable is for people like Peta Credlin who suggest that Y2K was a myth. That assertion speaks directly to how base and far removed from reality her views are.

No sane, rational person can argue that there were significant problems associated with the Y2K bug.

No wonder we have a coalition government that does not have a clue about developing sensible energy policy.
