Mr Shorten made the comments in Perth, while backing in Labor’s commitment to raise the pay of child care workers by 20 per cent. The plan will cost taxpayers $9.9 billion over the next decade.

Labor leader Bill Shorten appeared more genuine, unscripted and prime ministerial in the final leaders’ debate last night than he had on previous occasions, according to a body language and speech expert.

Mr Shorten had visibly teared up during a press conference earlier in the day, reacting to a Daily Telegraph story about his mother. And Michael Kelly, a body language expert, believes that emotional side to the Leader of the Opposition was carried into the debate.

Scott Morrison and Bill Shorten battle over taxes, electric cars and climate change The first leaders' debate has seen the Prime Minister and Opposition Leader clash over the policies they are taking to the federal election. Liberal Scott Morrison hammered Labor's Bill Shorten over his party's election commitments and how much they would cost the Australian economy. But Mr Shorten insisted that was merely Mr Morrison's scare campaign and insisted electing Labor would end six years of Coalition chaos. The Seven West Media debate was the first leaders' contest to come from Perth, a city where both sides are optimistic of picking up seats in the May 18 election.

“We saw him more statesman-like, that we haven’t seen before. He improved throughout.”

He said Mr Shorten’s key wins included his “genuine, unscripted” comments about controversial sportsman Israel Folau, who was found guilty of a high breach of Rugby Australia rules over his social media posts.

The pair were asked if people should be allowed to express their fundamental beliefs or whether free speech being threatened in Australia.

Undecided voters picked Bill Shorten as the winner of the first leaders' debate, despite questions about the cost of his tax and climate policies. Prime Minister Scott Morrison pressured the Labor leader on how much he will increase taxes and what his climate policies will do to the economy. But Mr Shorten said the cost of inaction was greater, and he argued it was time to put middle Australia first instead of the nation's wealthiest.

In his closing statement about climate change he also struck a chord by talking about his children, Mr Kelly believes.

The leaders were asked what Australia will look like in a decade, if they are elected Prime Minister.

However, Mr Shorten still didn’t get everything right. He slouched, crossed his legs and didn’t look at Mr Morrison when he verbally attacked him, Mr Kelly said.

Prime Minister Morrison made good personal connections, added Mr Kelly, and he scored him just half a point behind Mr Shorten in his own tally, although he did interrupt the debate host, ABC's Sabra Lane.
