Paid pandemic leave means people aren't forced to choose between feeding their family or keeping their job – a choice no one should have to make. We need paid pandemic leave for every worker now – not after the next outbreak happens.

Astonishing evidence from the PM's Secretary this morning. More than 1,000 cases in over 100 facilities and 168 deaths in these homes. But it seems the PM hasn’t asked for any action from his department to deal with this crisis. 1/2

Perhaps the first piece of advice from the head of the PM’s dept could be to let Scott Morrison know he’s accountable for what happens in aged care across the country. There’s a lot of “I don’t hold a hose, mate”. Does anyone in the Morrison Government take responsibility?

Australians are being forced to empty their super accounts to survive the pandemic because they have no other choice. The Government is leaving people behind – and it's young people who will be paying the price for decades to come.

Ordinary Seaman Teddy Sheean was anything but ordinary. He was an Australian hero. I wrote about his service and sacrifice – and why he deserves a posthumous VC – back in May. It's a story everyone should know. It's a story we will rightly now honour.

It's one year until the earliest the next Federal House & Senate Election could be held. It will be vital for charting a course through the coronavirus recovery. We need your help to be ready for when the starters gun is fired, will you chip in?

Aged care workers are there for some of our most vulnerable Australians. But they're being let down by a broken system. For years now, workers have been underpaid and understaffed. So on Aged Care Employee Day, let me say this: We see you. We thank you. We'll fight for you.

We’ve just found out why no one even knows whether they are even eligible for the so-called support package for arts and entertainment workers. The guidelines brief is still sitting on the Minister’s desk waiting for his signature. A thread 👇🏼

Today we remember the devastating impact of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki nuclear bombings. Ridding the world of nuclear weapons remains a humanitarian and global security imperative. Australia must lead international action to help drive progress to solve this global challenge.

The Department of Health yesterday revealed just 100,000 aged care workers have completed the Morrison Government’s training modules in infection control. This represents less than one in three workers. Why did this completely inadequate take-up not raise serious alarm bells?

Now has the findings of the latest review of a VC for Teddy Sheean, he should release the report and announce a decision ASAP. It’s time to give Teddy the honour he deserves. See my piece in today's Mercury.

Deeply saddened by the news from Beirut this morning. Our thoughts are with all the victims, their families and with Lebanese Australians concerned about their loved ones.

Truly horrifying situation in Beirut right now. Thinking of all those affected and the Lebanese Australians who now face an anxious wait as they try to contact loved ones. A difficult year made so much harder for so many.

Christian Porter and Scott Morrison now say they never supported Clive Palmer's challenge to WA's border closures. Really? That's not what they said when they intervened in the High Court in June.

For people in Melbourne, the next six weeks is going to be the most challenging period of this pandemic so far. The important thing to say to Victorians right now is please – look after yourselves. Protect your health. Protect your mental health. We'll be together again soon.

Right now is the time to listen to the health advice. If you're in Victoria, that means wearing a face covering when you leave the house and if you’re feeling unwell, get tested even if you have the mildest of symptoms.

Scott Morrison said the tragic events that have occurred at Victorian nursing where residents have been left abandoned could not have been ‘anticapted’ But it did happen. Just a year ago at the Earle Haven nursing home. 👇🏻 /1

Morrison’s irrational deal with Palmer on the WA border is best explained by the $60 million Palmer tipped in to their preference recycling scheme ($8 m in the last week) delivering Liberals their wafer thin majority
