‘It’s been a political stunt from the start’ says Dutton on au pair scandal

Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton says the au pair inquiry against him is like “water off a duck’s back”.

Labor and the Greens claim Mr Dutton misled parliament over some of his visa decisions in 2015.

Mr Dutton stopped the deportation of two foreign nannies, amid claims they had links to people he knew.

The Minister denies any wrongdoing, telling Ray Hadley the findings are predictable.

“They say I’m bad and misled parliament, all this garbage.

“It’s been a political stunt from the start.

“All it’s about is trying to, I think, distract away from the work that we’ve done with visas. The Greens and the Labor Party detest me because of Operation Sovereign Borders and the tough decisions we have to make in relation to keeping our borders secure.

“For me, it’s water off a duck’s back. I’m not going to take any notice of the witchhunt that’s been conducted.

“You wouldn’t expect anything more from the dodgy inquiry that was set up by the Labor Party and the Greens.”
