Fiery moment Bill Shorten enters into ripping agreement with journalist about Labor's climate change plan

& # 39; Why can't you answer the question? & # 39; Fiery moment Bill Shorten enters a bad match with journalist about Labor & # 39; s plans to fight climate change

  • Mr. Shorten spoke to reporters in South Australia on Tuesday afternoon
  • Channel 10 journalist Jonathan Lea asked about the goal of emission reduction
  • Lea repeatedly asked Mr. Shorten to expand the policy and the impact on the economy
  • During a tense exchange, Mr Shorten refused to answer Lea's questions

Bill Shorten had a tense exchange with a reporter about the campaign path, who asked him about Labor's emission reduction target.

Mr. Shorten spoke to journalists in Bedford Park, South Australia on Tuesday when Channel 10 journalist Jonathan Lea asked him about the plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

& # 39; When can voters expect to find out more about Labor's emission reduction target, how to get there and the costs to the economy? & # 39; Asked Lea.

Lea said that Mr. Shorten's response to Prime Minister Scott Morrison's budget was "only health-focused," Mr. Shorten said.

& # 39; First of all, I didn't just talk about health … I don't know what private conversations you have with people or what you want to reveal, but let me take stock, & # 39; said Mr. Shorten.

He then said that Mr. Morrison's claim of a strong economy is a & # 39; classic liberal strong economy & # 39; was based on & # 39; low wages & # 39; and a lack of investment in services.

& # 39; You are not answering the question, Mr Shorten, & # 39; said Leah.

"Oh okay … I'm going to give someone else a chance," Mr. Shorten said in response, pointing to another reporter.

& # 39; Answer the question, when can people know? & # 39; Asked Lea.

Wanneer When can people know, the costs for the economy? You have not answered the question.

& # 39; You should answer the question, so we are here to ask questions and you do not answer the question. When can people expect, Mr Shorten, the costs for the economy?

& # 39; Why can't you answer Mr Shorten's question? & # 39;

Mr. Shorten refused to answer and said he wanted to answer questions from other journalists.

& # 39; Because I am going to give your colleague & # 39; s a half hour, & # 39; said Mr. Shorten in response to Lea, asking why he could not answer the question about the cost of the emission reduction target.

Lea later tweeted about the fiery meeting with Mr. Shorten.

Vijf Five times I asked Bill Shorten what the costs of his emission reduction target for the economy would be? And when Australia would know, & Leah said.

& # 39; Five times he even refused to try to answer. Frustrating. & # 39;
