Anthony Albanese and his Labor colleagues took each alternative in yesterday’s query time to say the ABC’s Nemesis sequence, and Menzies MP Keith Wolahan has given him one other straightforward excuse to take action.
Wolahan requested the prime minister about Treasurer Jim Chalmers’ feedback on the ABC’s 7.30 program on Monday, the place he mentioned the federal government “didn’t need to wait till after the Dunkley by-election” to announce the stage 3 modifications.
Albanese says he was, certainly, watching the ABC on Monday night time, and says these throughout the chamber had been watching too.
“Most of them had been on it, in a contest of who might present essentially the most hatred for his or her colleagues,” he says.
He then brings the dialogue again to stage 3, saying the opposition labelled his authorities’s modifications as “an egregious error, a betrayal, treachery, trickery, completely shameful, class warfare, battle on aspiration, lifetime tax on aspiration” amongst others – however ultimately declared they might vote for it.
“They mentioned all that earlier than they declared they might vote for it,” he says. “I imply, you can’t be taken severely except you say the choice this authorities has made is mistaken and, subsequently, the unique place ought to have remained in place.”
