@ScottMorrisonMP . is defending Australia's High Commissioner to the UK, George Brandis, after he left his post over the Christmas break, even though thousands of Australians remained stranded in London. #auspol #7NEWS
"The way this has been handled is really just horribly insensitive" Phoebe Mackenzie, an Aussie doctor stranded abroad, has blasted Australia’s High Commissioner to the UK, George Brandis, for returning to Australia for a holiday while thousands of citizens are stuck overseas.
George Brandis just stated that being a paid lobbyist while holding office was "appropriate and commonplace."
For all my objections to George Brandis even he never tried to abolish the Department of the Arts. If you value Australian stories being told, have a think about this decision. They didn’t “downsize” the Department of the Arts. There no longer is one. Gone. #auspol #arts
