JLN Independent Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie has responded to Prime Minister Turnbull’s and Family First Senator Bob Day’s plan to negotiate the ABCC Legislation through the Australian Senate.
See video below for response:
“In relation to the ABCC legislation, a few important points have to be made:
- The Law Council of Australia got it right. The ABCC is very bad legislation - which undermines some basic civil rights and freedoms.
- More corruption occurs in banking, finance, insurance and government departments than in the civil construction industry …
- On behalf of Tasmania - I’m happy to negotiate with the PM directly in relation to any legislation on its merits – and my state’s best interests.
Because Bob has voted with his liberal friends to take $30B of education, health and social entitlements from Australia’s poor – while allowing their rich Liberal mates to escape paying a fair share of tax.
And unlike Bob Day – I’m not scared of a DD election.” said Senator Lambie.
