The situation in India is deeply worrying. The people of India and the many Australians stranded there need support and compassion. My message to Australia's Indian communities: https://t.co/3lYgXiPr8v

The Morrison Government is spending almost $100 billion and racking up a record $1 trillion in debt - and yet real wages will go backwards. https://t.co/fATweoxd7V

My reaction to #Budget2021: Australians have endured eight long years of flat wages, insecure work and skyrocketing cost of living under the Liberals and Nationals – and this Budget does nothing to change that. It's just more of the same from a tired old government. https://t.co/Og8q06JYud

As a strong supporter of the rights of Israelis and Palestinians to live in secure & recognised borders, Labor is deeply distressed by recent violence & incitement in Jerusalem including unacceptable attacks on worshippers & rocket attacks. Labor calls on all sides to deescalate.

This Budget is yet another marketing exercise that can’t re-brand the mismanagement and missed opportunities that define eight long years of this Liberal-National Government. #Budget2021 #auspol

The Liberals are spending more time gagging Labor and defending Andrew Laming remaining Chair of a Parliamentary Committee than Andrew Laming spent on his online “empathy” course #shame

This government can’t be taken seriously when it comes to supporting women. After years of cuts and neglect, whatever they promise in this budget is a political fix in an attempt to cover over their failures. #auspol https://t.co/B6cd4M1Qyp

Instead of calling it a "pink budget" ... how about we call it a "red" one ... 🤬 #auspol @10NewsFirst https://t.co/90sShlYLpU

“When was the last time you got a pay rise?” The answers speak volumes about eight long years of the Liberals and Nationals and why working Australians need a bigger slice of the action in the recovery. #Budget2021 #auspol https://t.co/npWICx8EjN

The test for governments isn’t how many projects you can "announce” before an election. The test is what you actually deliver to make people’s lives better and make their jobs more secure. After eight long years, the Liberals and Nationals have failed that test.

The Morrison Government likes to get splashy headlines, but when it comes to actually doing what’s needed to protect Australia’s interests, it goes missing. We need more strategy and less political management. https://t.co/p45EanKXaI

The Morrison government knows who attempted to hack the IT systems of the Australian Parliament, but it won’t tell the Australian public. The most important audience for the attribution of incidents involving our democratic institutions should always be the Australian public. https://t.co/21O0aKfKpX

Australians cannot afford for this Morrison and Frydenberg Budget to be yet another missed opportunity. Another pamphlet of promises we know won’t live up to the hype, that is only focused on the next election and not the next decade. #Budget2021 #auspol https://t.co/A3K98DK2Tq

No one should be going hungry in Australia. So many South Australian women showed their support for the important work of @Foodbank_SA at Friday’s Women of Influence Luncheon. All proceeds from the event will go to supporting Foodbank’s mission to end hunger in South Australia. https://t.co/HtK99qjcP6

Labor won't take lectures on fiscal responsibility from the Government of sports rorts, dodgy land deals, billions wasted on JobKeeper for profitable companies that didn't need it, and the JobMaker job-faker. #insiders #auspol https://t.co/nNqdAYiu24

Mother’s Day is such a special day, but for me and many others it's always a bit difficult. Mother's Day was the day my mum went to hospital and never came back. (THREAD) https://t.co/wuk3wbCcEI

Australians across the country are rightly concerned by how the Morrison Government has treated nearly 10,000 Australians stranded in India. Thank you to Indian-Australian community leaders in Brisbane for joining me and my Labor colleagues to share your views. https://t.co/T14pwd6R5M

Violence against women is the number one cause of death and disability for women between the ages of 15 and 44. ⁦@jennymcallister⁩ and I met with representatives from three Queensland services to hear how the impending loss of funding will impact the women they support. https://t.co/SmAev5TPf4
