Peter Dutton defends Labor’s anti-corruption bill from crossbench backlash
Peter Dutton has returned fire on the crossbench after yesterday backing the government’s proposed anti-corruption commission.
It’s a move Ray Hadley says drove independents and Greens politicians “cuckoo” because they object to a decision that would allow the commission to hold most hearings in private.
“I want a body that has teeth but I don’t pursue the Greens’ and the teals’ attack on it because what they want is instability,” Mr Dutton told Ray.
“They want, whether it’s a Labor government or a Liberal, for there to be these show trials and for there to be this air of instability because that’s their model, that’s what gets them elected.”
