Scott Morrison rejects criticism over 'sports rorts' email trail

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has rejected fresh attempts from the federal opposition to link him to a controversial $100 million sports grants program.


Prime Minister Scott Morrison is under fresh scrutiny over his part in the 'sports rorts' scandal after it emerged 136 emails about the scheme were sent between his office and the minister responsible.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has rejected fresh attempts from the federal opposition to link him to a controversial $100 million sports grants program.

Labor has renewed its attacks on the prime minister over the controversial $100 million program the auditor-general found favoured coalition-targeted seats before the election."This rort knows no bounds," he told parliament on Wednesday.Mr Morrison insists his office had no decision-making role in the scheme.

"The leader of the opposition is trying to throw mud while he himself sits in an absolute swamp," the prime minister said.ANAO official Brian Boyd told a Senate hearing earlier in the month there was no evidence projects with prime ministerial representations had higher success rates.

Mr Albanese said there were multiple versions of the colour-coded spreadsheet that showed which party held the seat of applications.Mr Morrison said the head of his department had access to whatever document he required.

Democracy in this country is DEAD OutWithMorrison This government has shown itself to be immoral lying incompetents - not fit to hold office He used TAX PAYERS money to fund his regime AND thus his votes were bought, his party cheated and his win was not assigned through a miracle. This is where God and money part ways and it is very hard for the rich man.

A 'regional facility': Sydney mayor defends $10 million pool grantThe controversy surrounding the 'sports rorts' scandal engulfing the Morrison government has spread beyond Federal Parliament to the $58 million revamp of North Sydney's ageing public pool. So ScottMorrisonMP defunded the victims & survivors of DV of its $240k & gave $10 million sports grant to North Sydney - one of Australias 10 most affluent suburbs! AuspolSoCorrupt sportsrorts ScottyfromMarketing Seeing as Labor don't have the necessary gumption to block supply in the senate in a vote of no confidence, we should at the very least seek to freeze/sieze all LNP party assets while the matter of their election embezzlement is referred to the high court. So regional. Maybe it can be classed as remote too if they try hard enough dickfaber MichaelJSky

Rubbish from the leftists that cannot make a dent on the popularity that Morrison has developed. I did not vote for him but sure he is the best man for the job. I'm glad that we don't have to suffer Labor and their idiotic policies like the ones with Kevin07 and Julia Pinochio

It's simply not acceptable for ScottyfromMarketing to just shrug his shoulders and say, 'Tough' every time one of his rorts is uncovered. Note to all journalists: final decisions were for the Minister to make and, in that case, it is normal for the Minister to canvass views from her political colleagues including, not surprisingly, Le Boss, aka, the PM.
