I present to the House 'The Scandals of Christmas':

On the first day of Christmas the PM sent to thee, thirty million for a piece of land that was only worth three.

On the second day of Christmas the PM's plans were set, Mathias Cormann job-seeking on his own private jet.

On the third day of Christmas the PM gave WA, 'teaming up with Clive Palmer' to soothe their border closures away.

On the fourth day of Christmas the PM sent away, Tony Abbott and Alexander Downer while leaving stranded families at bay.

On the fifth day of Christmas the PM left us stunned, with $100 million of sports rorts for his re-election fund.

On the sixth day of Christmas the PM closed the door, to protect the minister for energy and his war on Clover Moore.

On the seventh day of Christmas the PM made an app, it cost $70 million but it couldn't find a scrap.

On the eighth day of Christmas he did not disclose, he was in Hawaii but he didn't hold a hose.

On the ninth day of Christmas while Victorians were stuck at home, he sent us all a message: you guys are on your own.

On the 10th day of Christmas the PM decided to say, we're passing a bill and it'll cut your take-home pay.

On the 11th day of Christmas there was no more to doubt, his robodebts were illegal and he had $1.2 billion to pay out.

On the final day of Christmas a year that belongs in the bin, all we got from this PM was marketing and spin.
