Coalition responsible for the demise of Australia’s Family Court

Morrison is in the process of dismantling everything, politicizing the public service, placing ex LNP wannabes in AHRC,Defence, ABC, all in preparation to create chaos for the ALP after the next election. Politics not service his constant charter.

The Government’s merging of the Family Court with the Federal Circuit Court will complicate the family law system over time, writes Graham Perrett. FOR 45 YEARS, the Family Court of Australia was the envy of the world. From 1 September, this envy is no more.

Morrison has his Charlottesville moment “It’s not my fault everyone’s doing it”

The idea that a question so fundamental to our sense of self as a people would arise on his watch would have been absurd a fortnight ago. But it was inevitable once we learned that a young woman who worked for Morrison’s government had been allegedly raped by a colleague in Parliament House. Inevitable because the Prime Minister’s first instinct was to see the story of Brittany Higgins politically. He sensed the issue would be damaging for his government, and took the short cut of denial. He wanted the public to know he wasn’t told by anyone in his office or his ministry before the news broke on February 15.

These matters, as we know, are not confined to any one side of politics in this building.” That need to be blameless at all times echoes the self-sabotaging stand he took during the black summer of fires, when he said he didn’t hold a hose, mate. He didn’t start the fires, and it was the responsibility of the states to put them out.
