Albanese claims ‘the current problems were a failure’ of the former government

Sky News Political Editor Andrew Clennell says Prime Minister Anthony Albanese claimed Australia’s energy crisis was a result of the “failures” of the former government. “Prime Minister Anthony Albanese was called upon this morning to comment on the energy crisis amid reports there was a danger of blackouts in Queensland and NSW over the last 24 hours,” he said. “He says the Australian Energy Market Operator is ensuring there is enough supply. “The PM also claimed the current problems were a failure of the former Coalition government in not putting enough of a grid together to transmit electricity and by not having a coherent energy policy.”
