My question is to the Prime Minister. Is the Prime Minister honestly expecting Australians to believe that an administrative error was to blame for the government supporting a motion which used a white supremacist slogan, when it knew of the motion in September and directed its senators to vote for it yesterday? Cabinet ministers then tweeted in support of the motion last night. And today the government refused to allow this House to debate and reject it. Is this what the Prime Minister meant when he called his own government the 'muppet show'?
