Scott Morrison – Australia politics live: Biloela family await news on their future, Morrison and Johnson discuss trade deal | Australia news
The government has finally made the right decision, but only after spending millions of dollars and putting this family through years of heartache.
This is a family that was deeply loved by the Biloela community. The dad worked in the abattoir and supermarket, volunteered on the weekend at Vinnies.
The mum volunteered at the local hospital, and then two little girls were born in Australia. It took one of them getting terribly sick, spending two weeks with a high fever and finally being taken to Perth hospital, and then Barnaby Joyce, Katie Allan, Trent Zimmerman, Tony Abbott, all speaking out for this to become a political problem for Scott Morrison.
He’s done the right thing, not because it is the right thing, but because it solves a political problem.
