Prime Minister Scott Morrison and Opposition Chief Anthony Albanese clashed over border safety and boat turnbacks in a fiery dialogue at tonight’s Peoples’ Discussion board.
The 2 leaders had been requested about their respective scare campaigns earlier than Mr Morrison started grilling the Labor chief over boat arrivals in Australia beneath his watch as deputy prime minister.
Mr Albanese pointed to his authorities’s transfer to determine offshore detention centres, earlier than Mr Morrison lower him off and requested: “When you were Deputy Prime Minister, why didn’t you support turn backs then?”
However the Labor chief fired again, shouting on the Prime Minister: “You weren’t proposing back then. You were not back then”.
“I’m sorry we were, it was our policy. Turn backs were our policy before the 2013 election. I was the Shadow Immigration Minister. I designed the policy,” Mr Morrison stated.
