Shorten short on facts, again!

May 08, 2019

Bill Shorten has been caught out for omitting one vital fact from his sob story on Q&A about his late mother's dream to be a lawyer.

The Conservative Party believes Labor's push for equality of outcomes rather than equality of opportunities is both unreasonable and unattainable.

The Daily Mail reports, the Labor leader delivered a spiel about his mother Ann, who died aged 79 five years ago, during the final minutes of the ABC show on Monday night.

Mr Shorten told how his mother came from a working-class background and was the first in her family to go to university.

She had dreams of being a lawyer but became a teacher instead so she could care for her siblings. 

But the facts are Mrs Shorten actually did follow her dreams and became a barrister later in life when she was in her late 50s.

She graduated with a law degree from Monash University in 1985 with first-class honours, and practised at the Victorian Bar for six years. 

She was also the founder of the Australian & New Zealand Education Law Association in 1991 and also paid to send her twin boys to Melbourne’s exclusive Xavier College.

Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi set Labor's Amanda Rishworth straight on ABC Radio Adelaide this morning.
