PM proposes Indigenous day to quell Australia day heat
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has proposed a new national day celebrating Indigenous Australians. The announcement comes after another council has decided to stop holding citizenship ceremonies on January 26.
Scott Morrison criticised the move of Byron Shire council in Sydney as ‘indulgent self-loathing’ after it became the third council in Australia to cease citizenship ceremonies on Australia day.
