Short of gas because green and labor pressure to stop gas mining in Vic and NSW. Rescind their decision to ban mining and make it into law. I am lifelong LNP voter, but you, Mr Turnbull, have no idea. Sorry to say.

Stop relying on so-called experts from whom you seek advice. Most of the issues requires basic knowledge and a attitude of partiotism. Ensure energy security for Australia is all forms and stop helping other nations from borrowed funds. If you can't work out why - fall on your sword. We demand Australia first.

Amazing that any government could take any step to secure a sensible supply of our own gas. I would have thought this was one of the first jobs of government. Pity it never dawned on any particular government to do their job before now. If Malcolm keeps this up then he might be the first decent PM in a decade or more. It seems that the PMs job for years has been to sell everything off, fight with the opposition and maybe even bash the workers who (overall) just want to have a job and a family life. Amazing about all that - really!!!!!!!!!

What I heard was "I am going to knock a few cents off the domestic gas price SO THAT you cannot complain when pillage more Australian agricultural land for destructive LNG projects."Government is paying $0.47/L for imported Australian gas. We are being robbed blind.

So, we're going to be the largest exporter BUT we have a shortage for us! This is a ploy from the gas companies to get more drilling sites! If Australians pay more for gas than other countries, then why wouldn't the gas companies cover the local market first? After all, they would make more money. This is more BS, more spin, more pretending to do something while doing nothing. Thanks LNP.

How about investing in renewable energy! I used to be an LNP member but never again! The ALP and Greens may have no idea how to run an economy but at least they have the foresight about renewables and the environment!

The price of Autogas keeps going up. How do I, as a pensioner, manage to fill my vehicle. My pension is not going up by the equivalent amount. Talk is cheap - do something.

You made a big mistake. Making exporters save gas? While Labor and Greens shut down gas mining in NSW and Vic??? Overturn the economic vandals, labor and greens, and leave the exporters alone.

Gosh I love all these comments I am reading....the good old Labour and the Greens are really and have been for a while stifling our country...toughen up Turnbull and pull Vic and NSW into line...either that or??????????????

You can talk the talk but when it comes to action you lot go missing. Snowt Hydro 2.0 LMFAO

No kidding Mr Turnbull! What took you so long to wake up?

No it wont Turnbull would not say that it will be cheaper domestically.

Don't believe a,word he says

And where are the royalties that they supposed to pay to Australia

I'll believe it when I see it, step down Mal and give Mr Abbott a go.

So true Judy

Turd is a d----/H

The man with fork tongue speaks it must be lies

I'll believe it when I see it.

Not if Origin has any say in it.

read the contacts the government signed. 'NO gas for local market'

Can't trust this man

Just another lie out of a traitors mouth

Labor promised open and honest government. They lied. Annastacia Palaszczuk and the Labor Party are hiding important information about young criminals from you and every other Queenslander.

Liars are us = Labor. Say one thing - do another. No plan, no ethics, no talent. Have done nothing except suck up to the unions. No wonder Qld is slipping backwards at a great rate.

Um did anyone expect anything else from LABOR. State and Federally, their "runs" are all on the board....few and far between plus the lies.... What really have they done.....or accomplished.... Even to incompetent to fill in paperwork....to start getting funds for those in dire straits after the cyclone...... And swan off to India offering money to get a mine up and running.

we all knew it would come to this.. labor are running qld yet they couldn't even run a successful chook raffle at the local rsl..

Just goes to show laborgreens supporters forgive every thing they don't do while in Government but when LNP get into Government they get knocked by Laborgreen supporters for getting things done. Oh Shorten and unions don't lie or break any laws either.

The unions who control Screeching Anastasia are choreographing this news blackout ....their members are complicit in the incompetence in the system...no one wants to talk about union incompetence....do they ? Socialism has well and truly arrived in Australia ....

Done, with thanks Qld LNP - Liberal National Party; socialist Labor in association with toxic Greens are the assassin of Queensland employment opportunities, infrastructures for state economy to functions, Fishing & Farming Industries, etc. & Unions' 'slavish' in particular. Queensland under Labor term always going backward and electricity bills just recently is soooo expensive due to socialist Anna's intervention let us-the consumers pay their former national debts etc. Living here in 4670 alone for 23yrs successive this current house the smallest of all from former 3acreage homes & prawn farm, the amount of electricity bills for 2adults only, kids already gone south paying cheaper than us here is not justified to be that high-crazy. Therefore, no Labor & Greens for this family.

If you think the LNP make better government than Labor, then you are all of the wealthy selfish class citizen who couldn't give a stuff about their fellow Aussie Battlers! Having a PM who has his millions stashed in the Cayman Islands purely to shirk his taxation responsibilities is typical of the LNP!

Do not be critical of our women Premier in Queensland she is only the puppet of the Trade Union movement who control and manipulate the Queensland government for their own political purposes! Queensland should change the name of Labour Day to UNION DAY!!!

This is a mess. Voting one nation is a vote to the LNP! Labor has lost me with their support of Adani! LNP have lost me on their lack of care for the Aussie Battlers!

Are you suggesting the government release details when that could affect legal outcomes in the courts? I know your attorney general was a complete stuff up ... and you expect this government to be the same? How short a memory do you think Queenslanders have?

When are all the major party voters going to realize that there is a pattern here. LNP until they get on the nose then labor until everyone is sick of them then give Lnp a go again until they don't tow the line. Keep voting for the same major parties and keep getting the same results.

I don't know who to vote for, I'm tired of both Labor & LNP. IF I vote for any party on the left, my vote goes to Labor, if I vote for any party on the right, my vote goes to LNP...the system needs to change, tired of the same old same old making promises and breaking them

Let's just bolster that one nation vote cause your history ain't that grand either! Would vote labour anyday in Queensland !

Criminal lists are not a high priority in my household . Balancing the budget is # 1 on my list of important Issues . Stamp duty in Queensland is getting out of hand along with other government & council charges . Power prices defy me for words . Fix these things & you'll romp in at the next election ..

Labor show they have no idea what they are doing as they don't know how to make a decision

NLP, what is you policy on net free zone fishing, please? You will not get fishers votes unless you make your stand clear and precise. Get rid of the next free zones and you will out on 1000s of votes...

Hopeless govt from day 1, next ones in will have a lot of catching up to do.

Liberal and Hanson are the worst in history with telling great big porkies

It's what I expected from Pallasook and her union mob!

Their not sucking up to the unions, the union own and run this Government and as such the Unions are controlling Queensland

Clusters incorporated.. Same old filthy lying Liebor..

Just like the presnt PM is giving our money away, and our country you mean.??

That lest they did not give themselves a big pay rise and then sacked 25.000 worker like that Newman did

I'm still confused how you get Palashe out of Palas-zc-zuk??😂

Give them a brain and they would be dangerous Give them a brain and they would be dangerous

Luke Howarth on Yassmin's ANZAC Day comments

Comment on Facebook

Out of touch ???? More like rude, condescending, ill informed, immature, derogatory and disgustingly antagonistic. This is what happens when you give some one that has no life experience a voice. She is nothing but a vile overrated ignorant child that has no understanding or plain ignorant of our history.

And this clown clothed mole some time ago was voted Young Australian of the year or some BS. (How dare she calls herself Australian). Be interesting to know who got paid to vote for this thing. The ABC should be ashamed of having her on the show and should be sacked immediately.

Thank you Mr Luke Howarth! Spot on. And it's precisely why she must be taken off the taxpayers payroll. She represents what exactly??? Her indulgent comments and divisive mentality must not be paid for with our hard earned tax. She must be fired from all her roles that are paid for by the taxpayers!

Really?? So, what did she say that was so bad? I'd like to see any of you idiots come up with a reason. What she said has been also said by religious leaders at mass and also by some speeches at dawn services. She has not insulted anyone. Australia has become a bunch of nationalistic idiots. Also, your claim to "lest we forget". You might want to look up where that came from. Its not owned by the Anzacs. It comes from an 18th century poem. And where is all the outrage at all the d**keads getting pissed at the pub? Is that "respectful"?! Where is your twitter and media outrage.... yeah, bunch of redneck racists.

Effffffffffffffffff the ABC.. Our taxes could be utilized in a far better way. I'm absolutely certain the people of recently devastated North, central, southern QLD, and northern NSW. Would definitely be much more appreciative of the further financial assistance from the federal government. Much less foreign aid also. Our money staying here, for Australians for a change.

These comments confirm what I feared. If the comments here represented the only bigoted and ignorant racists in this country, the number would still be far too high. No explanations of how each was offended or why, just vicious attacks. So here we are. OMFG!

She is an ignorant ,rude & self opiniated person who certainly didn't do her research but opened her mouth before she put her brain into gear..very rude .

My god why doesn't the government cut funding to the ABC, shits me that I am paying for this sort of crap, it's become a joke.

We don't need clowns like her here, go away somewhere where we don't have to look at you or listen to your verbal diarrhoea

The real problem as I see it is she said "it has been brought to my attention " so she did not realize what she said was offensive, someone had to point it out to her!

Luke Howarth..., not far enough. Mainstream genuine Australia, especially veterans and the family of veterans expect much more, and their political representatives go further on this bunna biatch..!

Luke Howarth proud to have you as my local member. You are in touch with mainstream Australia but more importantly the electorate of Petrie.

Totally agree Luke ,I was pretty angry about it , firstly bring political views , namely hers on a day which is our way of thanking those that fought for this country , many paying the ultimate price . ANZAC day is not about point scoring , its about a nation saying thankyou and remembering what achieved for us all

No taxpayers dollars should go to the ABC . they advertise and should be treated like all commercial stations .

Just sack her withdraw her Australia Day title and bring back some respect for our Anzacs.

She is the most disgraceful waste of space around. She should be publicly paraded around to cop the fury that she deserves.

Yes have watched this person befor and she is always arrogant and annoying. Time for her to go.

And when you are all of the above you kiss and make it all better by deleting and apologising

Iv got no idea what she said Matthew 🤔 but by your pic mate take a bath & brush teeth 😳

Out of touch but not surprising,she is employed by the ABC.

ABC shame shame shame but u lot r that arrogant and get paid with our tax money will not watch ABC again

I switch off any program she is on. I am sick of seeing Moslems given special treatment want them off my tv in any station.

Good on you Luke. Totally agree with you.

Withdraw ABC funding

Well Bishop should sack her, bet she doesn't 😡

Commemorating ANZAC Day 2017

Comment on Facebook

We always march on ANZAC Day. We will be attending a Dawn Service at Redcliffe. My children and grandchildren always march for their 2 great grandfathers and their grandfather. It is a wonderful day for them to show their gratitude and appreciation for those brave men and women who served to keep Australia free for the future generations. I must admit Australia is not the same country into which I was born and raised. I can see the erosion of our rights and liberty and plead with the government to address the situation sooner rather than later before it is too late.

Pity you don't do more for the kiwis living in Australia and not treat them like 3rd class refugees. 😡

It's now been 1000 days since the last people smuggling boat reached Australia & more than three years since the last known death at sea at the hands of people smugglers - the Coalition Government is determined to make sure it stays that way.It's now been 1000 days since the last people smuggling boat reached Australia and more than three years since the last known death at sea at the hands of people smugglers - this Government is determined to make sure it stays that way. ...

No refugees have made it to Australia on a boat for 1000 days. There's a lot that's bad as well as a lot that's good about that. Doesn't take a genius to see this as a dog whistle aimed at Ms Hanson's supporters and a "please promote me" from Mr Dutton.

How do we know this is correct when the first thing you did on being elected was place a ban on the reporting on boats arriving , do you expect us to believe that the boat captains on hearing the LNP had won power thought " oops , cant go to Australia , the Libs will send us back , best we save on fuel, turn around and hand out refunds to our passengers" ... then throw a welcoming dinner to celebrate the end of Ramadan for your refugee mates , sounds like more pathetic lies to me.

Great statement Dutton. You are the guys who refuse to publish figures. Who knows if that is just another LNP scam to get the right wing buggers to vote for you again.

Yes probably the most effective policy outcome in our history. Border security is fundamental to our nation. People coming via payments to people smugglers is not the way to seek asylum.

At last. A Prime Minister who can run the Country as a business and say "NO" or "YES" as needed to do it. Abbott really needs to butt out as he was, and is not, wanted anymore.....

They did that very well, I think that they should get down and govern our amazing country instead of blaming everyone else. I've lost respect for both major parties and the greens are a joke. None of them will get my senate vote.

And all the commentators and leftie pollies said it could never be done. Was all push factors and out of our control. They would be the same lot that said Trump was a joke and not electable. Yet they still show up giving their opinions. Should go away and hide in shame.

Yes. Australia can be really proud of the violence, mistreatment, attempts to stop whistle blowers and all the other wonderful things done on Nauru.

Dutton, please spare me your hypocrisy in claiming credit for stopping drownings at sea. Concern for their welfare was never a motivation, otherwise you wouldn't have left them to rot in third world prisons. When the last asylum seeker is free to get on with a normal life, then you may rest on your supposed laurels. Until then, you really haven't achieved anything while we continue to pay a billion dollars a year on their upkeep.

Good keep them out we can't afford them the govt keeps telling us we need to tighten our belts charity starts at home first take note coalition thats why more people are voting for minor parties because of dissatisfaction by the 2 major parties.

Aw good on ya but yet foreign aid and bringing in refugees to settle in Australia still remains the same what about the homeless on our streets first ?

do people know that more asylum seekers died under LNP governments then under Labor governments, there is a government department that keeps track of these deaths, were and how they died

So, you stopped a few thousand that arrive at the front door and present themselves to authorities, at huge expense to the public purse and our reputation as a nation. What have you done about the tens of thousands who arrive by plane using false documents or simply overstay legitimate visas?Seriously, no terrorist is going to jump on a boat to be interned for a decade on Mani's, though we might create a few in the process. If it was REALLY about border security, you would be spending the billions thrown away on a few boat people at our ports and airports.

great point you bunch of racists, how many died at home not having the option to escape. Awww that right those .figure dont concern you. Your a shame on this country and in years to come that how you will be remembered. I would swap that boat mob for your type boat of boat mob

Name a country that doesn't control its borders, that lets whoever cross over and take up residence. You can't. It doesn't exist any more!

Well congratulations to the Government that is certainly a great achievement, is just such a shame they haven't been able to do anything else other than take from the strugglers and give to their rich mates at the pointy end of town and of course fight with each other.

Excellent - and now work on two failures of yours ! 1... allowing so many moslems into the country! 2.... putting your hand into our pockets and supporting these corrupt moslem countries - please keep Turdbull and Bishop away from every moslem country as every such visit costs us at least a $ Million.

What's with the 1984 newspeak? "People Smuggling Boat"? Why not say a boat containing refuges and displaced people?

It is sad that politicians take pride in the misery of innocent people caught in war. Their desperation so great they put their lives at risk at sea

But they now just bring them in faster then they get here on there own turdbull needs to be hung

Yes that is terrific but letting them in legally is just as bad

they come in supposedly legal now and then use strong arm tactics to make everything halal so that australia now supports terrorism.

The Liberals have made a huge mess, and are heading for a thumping. The sooner the better.

Yep the potato has ensured the veil of secrecy has prevailed

But how do we know this is true since operational issues are not given to the media? Just saying....
