The following comments can be attributed to Senator the Hon. Eric Abetz:
"Yassmin Abdel Magied's unfortunate and disrespectful Facebook post today, of all days, is deeply reprehensible."
"Tens of thousands of Australians, from all walks of life, have gone to war and paid the ultimate sacrifice. Today, we pay tribute to them - not seek to use their sacrifice for cheap political point scoring as Ms Abdel Magied has done."
"The freedom she enjoys to make such disrespectful comments is what the people whom we commemorate today fought and died for. But that is where self-discipline, respect and decency need to be added into the equation, something Ms Abdel Magied has displayed she lacks."
