Condolence: Shane Warne

I rise to speak on the condolence motion for Shane Warne. Shane Warne was a cricketing legend, and he was a Victorian. I thought, with this speech, what better place to start than a time before Warnie. He was a legend, so what was before Warnie? What was before all...

 As a progressive politician I would have thought choosing between protecting trans and gay students and teachers and supporting Scott Morrison would be a pretty easy decision, yet disgracefully the Liberals’ religious discrimination bill passed federal Parliament last night with the help of Labor and so-called moderate Liberals. Protecting LGBTI...
