Tanya Plibersek defends Labor attacks on Peter Dutton

Although Plibersek was reminded that SHE HERSELF had said ‘We need to be more uplifting and less negative’ in debates, she joined Labor’s vicious Tribal attack by defending Keating’s nasty outburst:

‘The last six years, he consistently undermined Malcolm Turnbull’, she told Today. ‘He brought on the leadership instability, he ran for leadership instability, he ran for leader, wasn’t selected by his colleagues to become leader’. ‘He was voted by doctors as the worst Health Minister in living memory. He joked about climate change and the effect on neighbours in the Pacific.

  1. Labor doesn’t have a mortgage on those descriptions. LNP supporters have been as bad.
    The issue may be, who used them most. In my opinion it doesn’t matter much because it is unedifying to both sides.
