Senator Cory Bernardi, leader of the Australian Conservatives, told Sky News: “There is evidence that multi-member marriages are being funded through Centrelink.
“We know that, and they’re saying it’s cheaper to do it like that than to actually address the problem,” Senator Bernardi said. “They have multiple marriages, they have multiple children, and the system is being ripped off. The government knows that. It’s not doing anything about it.”
