Bruce Apps, Townsend.
The whole of the Coalition’s promises are just a hoax, nothing is truthful and once elected they will do as they did after the 2013 election – break all of their promises.
Yes, that is correct: a leopard never changes his spots.
‘Be Innovative!’ How, when money has been withdrawn from our education system, TAFE colleges have been closed and TAFE teachers dismissed?
Did you know that teachers’ aides have been withdrawn from our schools? Theses are the people who give one-on-one support to our autistic kids and are most necessary for their development. It has been a proven fact that many of our autistic kids have come ahead in leaps and bounds as a result of this program. But no – our politicians know best – it must be cut out. Here is a case of unqualified people making decisions that should be made by experts.
Joe Hockey’s cab fares are of more importance than the needs of our unfortunates. Giving $50 billion to big business is also of more importance than the lower income earners, the ‘battlers’.
Labor is still being blamed for our debt but it must be remembered that the Coalition parties have increased the nation’s debt by a triple amount since they came into power and haven’t got a clue of how to get it down.
Be honest PM admit the truth without all of the waffle. And whilst your at it admit that 11 politicians from your side were involved in the ICAC inquiry, including one of your Cabinet Members who refuses to face the Senate.
