CHRISTMAS MESSAGE

Hi, I’m Anthony Albanese, Leader of the Australian Labor Party. And I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. Christmas is a time where you get to spend time with your family, with your friends, and really celebrate who we are as a nation.

But it also can be a really difficult time. And in 2019, we think particularly of those people in the community who have been fighting bushfires. We think of those empty seats at tables where people have lost loved ones.

This is the greatest country on earth. And the thing that makes it the greatest country on earth is our people. Our people are resilient. Our people are courageous. Our people are committed to each other and to their local communities.

So, at this time in particular, a huge shout-out to those people who fought fires and done themselves, their community, and our entire nation a great deal of pride.
