Paterson MP Meryl Swanson has accused government MPS of being out of touch with the people who elected them.
In a speech in federal parliament on Wednesday, Ms Swanson said she became a member of parliament to work for the people of her community.
“I’m sure some of those opposite share that desire, but as the days pass it’s becoming increasingly evident that many do not. They are here for themselves,” she said.
Ms Swanson noted there were 12 days of Parliament until the 2019 Budget next April.
She challenged government MPs to get on with the job they were elected for or get out.
“This Government has given up. They’re not turning up. They’re not speaking. They’re not doing their job,” she said.
“This Government has run out of ideas and as they days pass they’re running out of members.”
