Anthony Albanese finished his COVID-19 quarantine and today came under fire for not giving a press conference on his first day out of isolation.
He didn’t have a scheduled press conference, but Labor leader did take a few questions on the tarmac at Sydney Airport before travelling to Perth to officially launch the party’s campaign.
He said he is looking forward to travelling west, thanked NSW Health for their support while he was sick, and talked about his deputy Richard Marles now testing positive to COVID-19.
Mr Albanese also thanked his time for holding the fort while he was unwell.
“What we have seen is shadow ministers right across the country portraying Labor’s position. We have a plan for a better future.
“We are now halfway through this campaign and Labor’s plan to strengthen Medicare, to address the cost of living issues where everything is going up except for people’s wages by having cheaper childcare, cheaper electricity, lifting wages, by making more things here in Australia, by addressing climate change, all of these policies and plans stand in stark contrast to a government that has learned the lessons of its mistakes over the last 10 years.”
