The Robodebt Commission lays bare a lack of regard for the rule of law among both ministers and public servants.
On 30 November last year, when the House of Representatives was censuring former Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Mr Albanese rose and stated with force:
The fact is that our democracy is precious. There’s no room for complacency … we can’t take our democracy for granted.
Yet his own office is engaged in undermining the rule of law; a foundation for democracy. If the Prime Minister doesn’t act in this instance, he’s no better than the man that was censured on that day.
