Prime Minister Scott Morrison has said that “of course” he does not agree with outgoing Liberal Senator Concetta Fierravanti-Wells claims that he is a “bully”, after she ripped into him in what would likely be one of her last speeches in Parliament.

The outgoing senator called her leader an “autocrat” and a “bully who has no moral compass” in a 10-minute speech late on Tuesday, declaring him unfit to be prime minister.

She also took aim at the “putrid stench of corruption” in the NSW Liberal Party and accused the Prime Minister of working with close ally Alex Hawke to contrive a preselection “crisis” in the party.

The veteran senator has been in Parliament since 2005 but was dumped from the two winnable spots on the Coalition’s NSW Senate ticket at the weekend, in an outcome she described as “dodgy”.

Mr Morrison today dismissed her complaints.

“She’s been similarly disappointed in the past with my predecessors,” Mr Morrison said.

“There were 500 people from the Liberal Party who turned up on the weekend to make their choice about who they wanted to represent them,” Mr Morrison said.

Senators Marise Payne and Jim Molan were awarded the top two spots.

“I understand she’s disappointed about that,” Mr Morrison said.
