Before we all roll over and vote for the new-image Abbott let’s remember it was only several months ago when he was relentlessly abusing Julia Gillard as a woman and denigrating the office of prime minister.
His mantra is ‘trust me’. He and his team refuse to be interviewed about his policies and costings. Well, I don’t trust a party that treats the electorate as fools.
Abbott’s party initially did not support the NDIS scheme, education reforms, mining tax and all the reforms Labor was able to get through parliament. We have no guarantees that they will honour education or the NDIS.
I don’t like Rudd. But I will vote for the Labor party as they support egalitarian policies. Fair and equitable access to education for our kids, better healthcare and support for the most vulnerable.
Hockey talks of waste by Labor. The halls, libraries, new classrooms now in every school in our region are something to celebrate.
A vote for Abbott is to let loose the thuggish behaviour he has exhibited these past years on the electorate. Think carefully and vote wisely!
