A bit of policy

Both the Prime Minister Scott Morrison and opposition leader Bill Shorten took to the stage among the faithful to announce new policy. Mr Morrison has decided to freeze Australia’s refugee intake in the hopes that will allow infrastructure to tackle congestion in major cities to catch up.

Scott Morrison says immigration is a key part of Australia’s future but says the refugee intake freeze will allow infrastructure to relieve congestion to catch up.

Mr Shorten delivered a double feature by revealing Labor’s plan for cheaper childcare and a dental plan for pensioners.

A Labor government would spend $4b over three year to increase the childcare subsidy payment and make it free for low income earners. Pensioners will be able to access $1000 worth of free dental care.

Not happy Julia

Trade Minister Simon Birmingham is unhappy with former colleague Julia Banks who will preference Labor above the Liberal Party in the seat of Flinders. Ms Banks quit the party last November alleging bullying during the ousting of Malcolm Turnbull from the prime ministership.

Injury at Clermont

Footage has emerged of a man on horseback riding into Bob Brown’s anti-Adani convoy and injuring a woman.

Queensland Police said the man was attempting to exit the ring when the woman and others attempted to close a gate.
