Morrison Government

Mr ALBANESE (GrayndlerLeader of the Opposition) (14:54): I seek leave to move the following motion:


That the House:


(1) notes the Morrison Government is weighed down by scandal and integrity issues, including:


(a) the corrupt sports rorts scheme, with colour-spreadsheets used to divide up taxpayer money, and emails going in and out of the Prime Minister's office;


(b) airport rorts in which the Government paid $30 million for a piece of land worth $3 million;


(c) stacking the Administrative Appeals Tribunal with Liberal mates;


(d) paying a Liberal Party mate and former Crosby Textor pollster more than a million dollars for taxpayer-funded market research;


(e) the Prime Minister's Office recommending long-term Liberal mate Peter Crone for a lucrative Government contract;


(f) the ASIC Chair and former Deputy Chair together claiming more than $180,000 to which they weren't entitled;


(g) Australia Post spending $20,000 on Cartier watches;


(h )reports the Assistant Treasurer used taxpayer-funded staff to branch stack; and


(i) the Minister for Energy being involved in too many scandals to count; and


(2) therefore condemns the Prime Minister for treating taxpayers' money as though it is his own.


 

Leave not granted.


 

Mr ALBANESE: I move:


That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the Leader of the Opposition from moving the following motion forthwith:


That the House:


(1) notes the Morrison Government is weighed down by scandal and integrity issues, including:


(a) the corrupt sports rorts scheme, with colour-spreadsheets used to divide up taxpayer money, and emails going in and out of the Prime Minister's office;


(b) airport rorts in which the Government paid $30 million for a piece of land worth $3 million;


(c) stacking the Administrative Appeals Tribunal with Liberal mates;


(d) paying a Liberal Party mate and former Crosby Textor pollster more than a million dollars for taxpayer-funded market research;


(e) the Prime Minister's Office recommending long-term Liberal mate Peter Crone for a lucrative Government contract;


(f) the ASIC Chair and former Deputy Chair together claiming more than $180,000 to which they weren't entitled;


(g) Australia Post spending $20,000 on Cartier watches;


(h )reports the Assistant Treasurer used taxpayer-funded staff to branch stack; and


(i) the Minister for Energy being involved in too many scandals to count; and


(2) therefore condemns the Prime Minister for treating taxpayers' money as though it is his own.


 

Leave not granted.


 

The watch is ticking on the need for a national integrity commission, and the rot starts at the top.
