I remind Australians of what is at stake in our democracy when we hear our most respected leaders saying, ‘Hitler would be proud.’ I say: never again. We must remember that during the Second World War, between 1938 and 1945, six million Jews were exterminated—not just Jews but Catholics, Jehovah’s Witnesses, people of colour, gypsies, […]

Surfers Paradise Surf Lifesaving Club: Business Meets Sport

I joined a packed room of dedicated Gold Coasters to raise funds for the iconic Surfers Paradise Surf Lifesaving Club—in its 100th year of saving lives on Surfers Paradise Beach. Hosted by the Gold Coast stellar citizen Andrew Bell OAM and his brother, Greg, was the annual Ray White Surfers Paradise Business Meets Sport luncheon, […]

How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is Dr Seuss’s story of an ill-tempered grump who goes on a mission. The grumpy, old, green Grinch plots to ruin Christmas for the Whos in the village of Whoville. Australians know that story. Aided by his pet dog, Max, he meticulously designs a bright red suit to disguise himself […]

St Hilda’s School

I’ve had the absolute pleasure of visiting St Hilda’s, a beautiful and prestigious school for girls in my electorate, several times over the last month. First, it was to celebrate the commissioning of the new principal, Mrs Virginia Warner, a great asset to the school community whom I know will make a very lasting difference. […]

Albanese Government

Imagine looking into the eyes of the Australian people who elected you as their nation’s leader and repeatedly being untruthful—deliberately telling untruths? That is exactly what Anthony Albanese and this Labor government continue to do to Australians. They have built a government based on lies and broken promises, with a weak leadership team at the […]

I really don’t think there has been a government as full of itself as this Albanese Labor government. They love big, sweeping statements. They tell mistruths and they claim credit for simply everything. Like the member for Robertson today, I want to talk about two of these claims. The first is that their government are […]

Cost Of Living Tax Cuts

I think members opposite conveniently forget that stage 1 and stage 2 tax cuts have already been delivered under the Morrison government, and this is stage 3 of those tax cuts. They forget, conveniently, that the low- and middle-income tax offset for those earning $48,000 to $90,000 a year was $1,500. They spruik about an […]

Coag Legislation Amendment Bill 2023

The COAG Legislation Amendment Bill 2023 seeks to amend several Commonwealth acts to update references to COAG and ministerial councils to reflect the cessation of the Council of Australian Governments, known as COAG, in 2020. The Morrison government’s establishment of the National Cabinet and the National Federation Reform Council to replace COAG on 13 March […]

Albanese Government

There is no word that describes the Australian Labor Party better than ‘liars’. They lied about cheaper child care— The DEPUTY SPEAKER (Ms Claydon): Excuse me, member for Moncrieff: you know that word is unparliamentary, and I ask you to withdraw it. Ms BELL: I withdraw. There is no word that describes the Australian Labor […]

King Charles III

Can I associate the Coalition with the Prime Minister’s remarks on our monarch, King Charles III. Our hearts go out to him, to his family, to the British people and to all those across the Commonwealth who care so deeply about the royal family. The monarch, only one year into his reign, is now struggling […]
