The core value of the Morrison government is look after your mates. And that lesson has been learned by bureaucrats and business. It's why this government is mired in sleaze

I assume Liberal troll @SenatorHume  will rebuke the Prime Minister for this statement on manufacturing today. After all, she recently lectured super funds that "their job isn't to rebuild the economy or create jobs."

Just checking you actually said the words attributed to you, @SenatorHume  -- your government is racking up ONE TRILLION DOLLARS in debt for the biggest spending spree in history but you're insisting Labor spell out where IT is getting the money from?

Or was the whole fiscal discipline thing just a rule that applied only to one side?

The Coalition once claimed Australia would default when Labor's debt was $100 billion. Now we'll rack up $1 trillion -- and it will only get us back to the same stagnation we endured before the pandemic. Welcome to Keynesianism for the rich.

Why we need a real federal ICAC: the bullshit model peddled by @ScottMorrisonMP  and @cporterwa  would never have caught Daryl Maguire

Big thank you to the PMO for sending out today's talking points and media summary and this very useful 10,000 word document of talking points

Bureaucrats are strongly attuned to the signals they receive from ministers and the tone of a government. When those signals are that the fix is in, that taxpayers' money is for rorting, that integrity doesn't matter, it's a mathematical certainty that some will follow suit.
