Shorten On Census: A Failure To Take Responsibility And A Failure Of Leadership

The Opposition Leader, Bill Shorten, says the census has been a shambles and is a failure of responsibility and leadership on the part of the Turnbull government.

Speaking in Melbourne, Shorten said the census has been one of the “biggest shambles” of government in many years. “Turnbull is already talking about blaming someone else,” he said. The government’s “failure to take responsibility is a failure of leadership”.

Shorten called for an independent Senate inquiry. “The only thing you can be sure of is that the heads that won’t roll are the ones sitting at the Cabinet table,” he said.

Shorten urged people to fill out the census and submit it. “Don’t let the bunglers win,” he said.
