“The PM’s so-called apology in Parliament yesterday failed to show empathy and recognise the pain and trauma that the robodebt program caused to hundreds of thousands of Australians.
“This Government relentlessly pursed people for years in the full knowledge that they were targeting vulnerable people for savings.
“I would apologise for any hurt or harm in the way that the government has dealt with that issue,” does not cut it, the PM clearly doesn’t get how much hurt and grief robodebt has caused.
“If you are sorry you say “I AM SORRY” not “I would apologise”.
“How about showing exactly how sorry your Government is and put in place a Royal Commission to get to the bottom of this whole mess”.
