Yesterday as I listened to Question Time in the federal parliament my blood almost boiled as lie after lie was told. The Labor Opposition really need to have a good long think about their questions to prevent half truths being offered as answers.
For example the obvious question that needed to be asked yesterday was this “which budget followed the Abbott/Hockey 2014 horror budget, that restored the $40 billion mercilessly ripped from public health and education in that L’NP/LNP 2014 budget ?” The answer is of course that it has not been replaced in any budget since that time.
Yes public health and education has since the 2104 horror budget been on ‘life support’ with annual small increases keeping it that way. The truth is that these ultra-right-wing ideologs simply can’t tolerate anything with the prefix ‘public’.
