Housing

This Labor government is all talk and no action. They’re spouting and spinning about what a great two years it’s been under Labor, but it hasn’t been a great two years, and Australians know it. It’s been a train wreck. We’ve seen 12 interest rate rises and watched on as Australia’s housing crisis just got […]

Education

For many young people, traditional education just doesn’t fit. As a result, they become disengaged and sometimes lost. In June I had the great privilege to visit Everything Suarve, or Esuarve, an organisation that offers alternative learning through a 10-week big-brother program for youths aged 16 to 24, with my gold coast colleagues my very […]

Albanese Government: Cost Of Living

Australians are being conned by this incompetent Labor government. Forty million dollars is being spent on an advertising campaign to tell all of you that you’re better off with their tax cuts. But Australians aren’t mugs—no, they are not. Their bills are up, their costs are skyrocketing and their living standard has collapsed by eight […]

TRANSCRIPT – ABC RADIO GOLD COAST

SARAH CUMMING:
You might have heard the saying to never discuss politics or religion at a dinner party. That religion and politics are forbidden topics in polite conversation. But now, another hotly contested issue seems to be joining that list; climate, climate change, climate targets. We often hear the term climate wars these days. Why is it so hard to get consensus on an issue as important as the climate?

Labor Government

Incompetence, mismanagement and waste. Words that  describe the government and this Prime Minister.  The most important job of the Prime Minister is keep Australians safe. He has failed to do so with devastating consequences for our community. The boats keep coming and the borders are not secure under this government. Australians feel unsafe on the streets, […]

Consideration in Detail

It’s disappointing that the minister for this portfolio, an important portfolio, has not turned up for this consideration in detail and has instead sent his junior minister to speak on his behalf. It is verydisappointing for Australians and certainly this side of the chamber. I was reading through my considerationin-detail speech from last year and […]

Prime Minister

We’re talking about weaknesses in the government, in this matter of public importance today. To me, the weakness seems to be management, and management comes from the top—from the boss. When we’re talking about weaknesses in this Prime Minister, I think it starts with letting down the Australian people on the economy. That’s the first […]
