Meanwhile, the Labor chief, Anthony Albanese, is on ABC24 and arguing with Patricia Karvelas about a post manufactured by the Queensland Labor party about Queensland becoming “flooded” by Victorians.
This is what we’re talking about, if you did happen to skip it.
Karvelas: “Is that an appropriate language use?”
Albanese: “Well, of course, the Queensland opposition, a bit like the Victorian opposition, have continued to test to engage in politics with this issue … ”
Karvelas: “No, no, dangle on a minute. I have received to cease you below. This is Labor actively playing politics, ‘flooding Victorians’ in Queensland. Which is not proper language, is it, about your fellow Australians?”
Albanese: “No, the Queensland LNP have all through this time period attacked the Palaszczuk federal government… [Queensland opposition leader] Deb Frecklington has played politics the total way by means of.”
Karvelas: “Does that suggest Labor need to play politics, also?”
Albanese: “Well, I’m answerable for my possess steps.”
Karvelas: “No, no, it is the Labor party. It is your model?”
Albanese: “Well, I haven’t found it, Patricia, and with regard, if you are likely to elevate a little something with me, I hope to be supplied some notice and to be in a position to check out from it.”
I think I communicate for all of us when I say: UGH.
