Independent Tasmanian Senator Jacqui Lambie has blasted the government and opposition for going after jobkeeper recepients while leaving profitable businesses.

It comes as centrelink issued just under 12,000 debt notices to welfare recipients in an attempt to recoup $32 million, but refused to go after businesses who also received the wage subsidy and made a profit.

Senator Lambie said it’s not the “Australian way”.

“What is wrong with being open and honest with the Australian people,” she told Liam Bartlett on 6PR Mornings.

“I’m bloody sick of it mate, I’ve had a gut-full of it, I’ll be honest.

“This is not leadership, the way to lead is to be open, honest transparent.

“This is how you stop corruption.”
