Prime Minister exposes Labor’s ‘one pathetic reason’ for refugee plan

The Prime Minister is accusing Labor of teaming up with the Greens and crossbench, to give a “green light” to people smugglers.

Independent Kerryn Phelps is behind a push to speed up medical transfers from Nauru and Manus Island to Australia.

The bill could have enough support to pass both houses of parliament, delivering the government a defeat on the final sitting day of the year.

Scott Morrison tells Alan Jones it’s a reckless move.

“It is a green light coming from Labor, teaming up with the Greens, to basically completely crumble offshore processing in this country.

“And they’re doing it for one pathetic reason. To try and play some games in the House of Representatives.”
