The solicitor general’s advice always a try on. The parliament not answerable to the High Court on this matter as The A-G Christian Porter admitted. Labor’s Tony Burke quickly amended the contested clause. Times up. Election now.
NO CONFIDENCE? Labor’s Tony Burke said no Governent would rule out no confidence but says now for @ScottMorrisonMP to reflect if this a matter of “vital importance” and if so consider what other PM did which was call an election
Scott Morrison is saying the ALP will grant permanent visas to anyone who lands in Australia straight after Tony Burke & Albo just did a presser saying that turn backs are bi-partisan.
If you're turned back how do you get a visa?
Morrison is the worst liar. #MedivacBill #auspol
HISTORIC MOMENT SCOMO LOSES ON #MedivacBill
Tony Burke is not ruling out a vote of no confidence, but says the key on whether Morrison calls an early election is whether he considers this legislative defeat a confidence matter.

Tell 'em @AlboMP and @Tony_Burke Gawd what moronic questions from #MSM who can't even STFU and listen to answers. There is NO silver lining for the nasty politicking of the LNP. #auspol #MediVacLAW yay!

'Howard did it!'
This is page 859 of Reps practice, which @Tony_Burke is referencing.
Yes, under the Constitution it's up to the Reps to spend money and the Senate is being naughty, but the House can vote to ignore it. Courts have held houses have to sort out s53 themselves
