Because we are not going to stand for the hypocrisy of those opposite. We are not going to indulge their political games and antics. That's why we voted in that regard in the chamber, because the hypocrisy is quite obvious. Take 2 July 2018 when Mr Shorten did a press conference near Gosford station to announce $15 million for commuter car parks. He was joined by the Labor candidate for Robertson and the Labor member for Dobell. I wonder how those projects were selected. Or 28 July when Mr Albanese was at Narangba station in Queensland with the then member for Longman, Susan Lamb, announcing $5 million. Guess what? That was the day before the Longman by-election. I wonder how that project was chosen by those opposite. Or 27 October 2018 when Mr Albanese teamed up with Labor Premier Dan Andrews to announce the Tarneit commuter car park in the lead-up to the 2018 Victorian state election.
