Can Scott Morrison Govern After Medevac Bill?
Over the last couple of days, the Lower and Upper Houses passed its medevac bill, allowing doctors more power to say whether asylum seekers could come to Australia for medical attention.
From a distance, it might have looked like business as usual – but the only problem was that the bill was being passed with the support of the opposition and cross-bench, the first time in nearly 80 something like this has happened.
So what does this mean for the stability of Scott Morrison’s government if it cannot confidently pass its own laws?
To discuss what the passing of this bill means for the government, The Daily‘s Victor Petrovic was joined by Anne Twomey, Professor of Constitutional Law at Sydney University.
