My question is to the Prime Minister. Can the Prime Minister confirm that because he cannot control the parliament, cannot control the National Party and cannot control his own government that today he will (1) backflip on a disability royal commission, (2) backflip on Labor's small business access to justice laws and (3) backflip on tougher penalties for corporate penalties. He's already shelved his eleventh signature energy policy. Isn't it clear this Prime Minister will say and do anything to cling to power?

What I can confirm is that the leader of the Labor Party can't get his head out of the Canberra bubble.
