(c) 8 February 2010, during a speech to the House of Representatives, the now Prime Minister said "Having the government pick projects for subsidy is a recipe for fiscal recklessness on a grand scale"

(d) 15 September 2015, on the PM program, the now Prime Minister said about marriage equality "I certainly think we should have a free vote and I’ve been very public about that"; and

(e) 7 November 1999, on Meet the Press, the now Prime Minister said about a republic "It needs a Prime Minister and a Leader of the Opposition working together to promote a Yes vote"; and
