Transcript of Doorstop – Parliament House, Canberra – Wednesday, 24 October 2018

Subjects: Government dysfunction.

ANTHONY ALBANESE: This is a government that is just looking for things to fight over. Now they are fighting over whether Malcolm Turnbull should attend an oceans conference in Indonesia. This is just pathetic and it comes at a time whereby this is a government that simply doesn’t have policies in key areas. They don’t have an energy policy. What they have is platitudes. Platitudes aren’t policies. Policies are things that change the economy, that drive that change through.

This is a government that has no idea why they are there. They are at war with themselves and consistently what we are seeing is that Scott Morrison can’t move either in a progressive direction or to the Right because his party is so divided that they have rendered him incapable of serious policy response.
