Shorten uses ‘drag’ jibe on PM

Sunday Territorian - - NEWS -

PRIME Min­is­ter Tony Ab­bott is act­ing like an op­po­si­tion leader in drag, Bill Shorten says.

The Op­po­si­tion Leader was asked about Mr Ab­bott’s re­cent claim that the pre­vi­ous La­bor govern­ment had not al­lo­cated enough money for chemo­ther­apy, when Mr Shorten started shak­ing his head.

‘‘ The Prime Min­is­ter needs to con­cen­trate on fo­cus­ing on what are things he is go­ing to do in the fu­ture, rather than sim­ply try­ing to be an op­po­si­tion leader in drag,’’ he said.

‘‘Once you get elected to run the govern­ment of Aus­tralia, that’s a mas­sive priv­i­lege, it doesn’t mat­ter who you are, Lib­eral or La­bor.’’
