I’ve known for a long time. He always makes sure there’s follow up - just like he did for these today. Albo knows it’s delivery that matters. Once the cameras are gone, Scott Morrison is too.

Hey, all that nonsense from your departments yesterday regarding helping ?  This failure appears to be happening live, right now, for 30 Aussies in San Francisco 👇

More than 30,000 Australians are still stranded overseas. There will be empty chairs at Christmas because of the incompetence of this government. They've spent so much time playing politics and fighting state premiers instead of focusing on their own jobs.

Hey Mr Morrison! You say the ability to get Australians home by Christmas is “limited by quarantine capacity”. The Commonwealth has power over quarantine. Why don’t you ever take responsibility?

More could be coming home if Scott Morrison would take some responsibility for Federal quarantine.

Right now. hearing heartbreaking stories from some of the 36,000 that is leaving behind. I’m furious with this Govt & the extravagance of funding & his ✈️ - one set of rules for them, every else gets left behind.

Another broken promise from - no way all 26,000 as of 18 Sept will be home by Christmas, much less the nearly 38,000 who are stranded today.

Carly who leads the campaign has told the Senate that she emailed the Government and never heard back. This is how Scott Morrison treats the stranded Aussies who he promised would be home by Christmas...

Time is running out for stranded Australians to get back to Australia in time for Christmas as promised they would. This looks like another announcement the PM won’t deliver on. Here's the facts👇

I’m greatly relieved to see Dr Kylie Moore-Gilbert freed from detention in Iran. She and her family have shown extraordinary resilience. We are thankful for the work of dedicated officials to bring Dr Moore-Gilbert home. We wish Kylie and her loved ones a joyful homecoming.

A month has passed since Scott Morrison received a report on hotel quarantine spelling out how he could make more safe quarantine capacity available – including using Federal facilities – but he hasn't delivered the recommendations.

If we keep excusing violence against women, we'll never end violence against women. On this International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women and every day, we say: Let's end this culture of excuses. Let's stop blaming women. Let's change attitudes and save lives.

This is a sad day for Australia. I know Australians will be distressed by this report. I am too. This is not who we are. And as the Chief of the Defence Force said this morning: "We are all diminished by it."
