Speeches in Parliament
Ms RISHWORTH (Kingston) (19:29): It has been an exciting week—a week that has been reminiscent of an episode from Game of Thrones. Indeed, we have a new king on the iron throne. It has been a week of intrigue, but also of ambition and ego. We have a new Prime Minister. After the knifing of the member for Warringah, we have a new king in town. But unfortunately we have seen that, to get to this position, the new Prime Minister has left his values at the door and has done a whole a lot of deals to make sure he got the coveted position he has wanted for so long. Unfortunately, in his ambition to get to the top job in Australia he has not shown much ambition for Australia and its people. Whether it is on marriage equality or climate change action, we have seen a deal done with the conservatives of the Liberal Party to ensure that he gets on the iron throne.
