Government engaging in ‘politics of retribution’ with censure motion: Morrison

Former prime minister Scott Morrison has defended his decision to secretly swear himself into multiple portfolios while in office after Leader of the House Tony Burke moved the government’s censure against him.

“The government’s response to censure and prosecute this motion is to engage in the politics of retribution and nothing less,” Mr Morrison told the parliament on Wednesday morning.

“These are the behaviours of an opposition, Mr Speaker, not a government who understands that grace in victory is a virtue.”
