As Australia watches the final dying days of the Turnbull government also known as the final fizzle of this fizzer government.
We are seeing a government that has been completely lacking in focus on the Australian people across this last week. They have been squabbling over their own jobs but at the same time they are trying to reset their dysfunctional government.
The Opposition Whip Joanne Ryan said in Parliament today “They want to reset this government. Whether it be a Turnbull prime ministership, a Dutton prime ministership or a third one that comes through the ranks, they are really just trying to press the reset button. It doesn’t matter who the Prime Minister is under this government.”
“The government can’t walk away from the fact that they have no economic answers for communities like ours and those around the country. They can’t walk away from the fact that they voted for $80 billion worth of tax cuts for the big end of town. They’ve done nothing about housing affordability. They can’t walk away from their voting record on education.”
“It doesn’t matter if, at the end of this week, we have a Prime Minister named Turnbull or a Prime Minister named Dutton. They can’t walk away from their record on health. They can’t walk away from their attempt to introduce a GP tax or their cuts to hospitals or, sadly, their cuts to preventable health.”
