Everyone Literally Laughed At George Brandis' Suggestion To Just "Call Centrelink"
Ohhh just CALL them.
Attorney-general George Brandis has come up with a solution for people who've been asked to prove they don't owe a welfare debt: Just call Centrelink!
The first question on Monday's Q&A was asked by Fred Thorpe, a former teacher and mother of three whose disability support pension is up for review.
Brandis was pushed on what people should do if they'd been sent an incorrect debt notice from Centrelink and now faced being thrown off welfare.
"When a notice is issued and a mistake has been made and it appears to the person who has been issued that a mistake has been made, they can contact Centrelink and sort out the problem," Brandis said.
