@abcnews Dear Leigh Sales, sll the public ask is that you pursue Liberal MPs and Ministers as hard as you do their Labor counterparts. QT in Parliament is abused by this gov with their overuse & misuse of the Parliamentary rule “the member shall no longer be heard”. This rule was created
@abcnews 2. when speeches & questions were not time limited as they are now. The rule was intended to sit MPs down who would otherwise waffle on for hours wasting time. Today Morrison & the Leader of the House misuse this rule to prevent the Opposition or the crossbench moving amendments
@abcnews 3. or asking uncomfortable questions in QT. A parliamentary democracy functions well when the government’s legislative program is subject to scrutiny by those with a different viewpoint. This government is NOT INTERESTED in scrutiny or a positive contribution from anyone. They
@abcnews 4. are apparently the font of ALL WISDOM on subjects from war powers, women’s rightsconditions of employment & wages, sexual harassment & bullying in the workplace, the needs of the disabled etc They simply don’t want to hear any opposing views they just want their bills passed.
