Scott Morrison takes a lot of empty words to the COP 26 conference in Glasgow, and his actions will brand all Australians as hypocrites and shirkers in relation to climate change.

The Morrison LNP government does not have a mandate to dictate the future of Australia, and unborn Australians, between now and 2050.

Morrison’s deceitful leadership has dictated Australia’s actions from a dubious deal done with the Nationals behind closed doors.

At the very least, the government should have consulted with every single elected representative of the people of Australia before committing our nation to policies which will affect Australia into the foreseeable future and beyond.

The… lack of integrity demonstrated by the Morrison LNP government is a monstrous affront to the very notion of democracy.

The only remedy is a change of government with a significant cohort of Independents who can make responsible decisions without the influence of vested interests in the media and the fossil fuel industry. Neither of the two major parties is fit to govern this country.

Our federal seat of Monash deserves better representation than it is currently getting from the incumbent LNP member.
