There is a total lack of maturity in Morrison comments. As much as I loathe Howard and Abbott neither would take a cheap shot at their opponents appearance. An adult would say “Whilst I don’t agree with Mr Albanese’s politics I might ask him for a few tips on losing some kilos.”— Don O’Brien (@bigdon61) March 15, 2022

Many trains are still being severely delayed or cancelled entirely, putting pressure on commuters trying to get to work on time.
