At a time when the nation is confronting serious issues like the global recession, reform of the telecommunication sector, Afghanistan, refugees and climate change, the Turnbull Opposition has chosen to have a Matter of Public Importance debate about how long a minister should have to answer questions.
Today’s debate about parliamentary procedures was nothing more than a distraction from the fact the Opposition is divided and lacks a clear position on all these important issues.
The problem for the Opposition is that when you don’t stand for something you end up arguing about nothing.
