Politics with Michelle Grattan: Liberal Dave Sharma on 2030 target
Liberal backbencher Dave Sharma, a former diplomat, discusses climate policy, the religious discrimination legislation, a national integrity commission, voter ID, China, and the Liberal party.
The proposed National Integrity Commission is under attack, amid fears it will be toothless. The government needs to rethink its model.
In the lead up to next week’s ALP national conference, which Shorten
needs to run smoothly, the government has been trying to exploit what
it sees as a Labor weak point – border protection.

Come election time, votes won’t turn on an integrity commission. They will turn on such issues as cost of living, discontent with flat wages, and health.
