It’s been a dramatic week in Parliament with seven Coalition MPs crossing the floor to vote against the government in protest against vaccination mandates and a lack of a federal corruption commission.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison stepped up his rhetoric against a federal corruption commission on Thursday after Tasmanian Liberal MP Bridget Archer backed an independent push to establish a national watchdog.

The Prime Minister also introduced the religious discrimination bill to Parliament on Thursday. That bill has highlighted divisions within the Coalition, with several moderate liberals urging the government to protect gay students and teachers.

Chief Political correspondent David Crowe joined Rachel Clun in Canberra to discuss what happened in the second last week of Parliament for the year.
