Whilst Labor supports elements of this motion, we won't be supporting it today. I think this motion goes to all of the issues we raised yesterday about the Greens continuing to behave as they behaved 10 years ago in seeking to drive wedges between progressive politicians who should be working together to deliver an outcome. Instead, they seek to move motions that try to divide the chamber. Their antics on this during the campaign may have got Senator Waters elected but they also returned a Morrison government, which I don't think the planet or anyone else in progressive politics in Australia thanks them for. As such, we will not be supporting this motion.
