Shorten roasts Dutton in Qld Labor speech

A buoyant Bill Shorten saved his biggest opening zinger for Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton during a speech in Queensland on Saturday.

The Labor leader said much had changed since his last speech to the Queensland Labor annual state conference: Malcolm Turnbull had left the building, Julie Bishop was on the backbench, and Mr Dutton is in “all sorts of trouble.”

“I mean seriously, what is the go with the au pairs?” he quipped.

“Who would have thought such an arch-conservative, inspiration to the Institute of Public Affairs, was secretly working towards a nanny state?”
