We’ve been constructive the whole way through.
There wouldn’t have been a day went past that either Chris Bowen, while he was the health shadow, or Mark Butler since, or myself as the leader, or Penny Wong as the Senate leader, haven’t pointed out some of the weaknesses in [Australia’s] strategy. That’s our job, to be constructive.
We have done our job, Scott Morrison has not done his job and he had just one job, to get this vaccine rollout right. And it is that failure that’s undermining going forward, because anyone who looked at last night’s media conference would have seen a prime minister, a health minister, being confused, being uncertain.
It’s Scott Morrison that said that he would underpromise and overdeliver when he said there would be four million Australians vaccinated by the end of March. The fact that hasn’t happened undermines confidence and the undermining of that sits squarely with Scott Morrison.
