Day 1 of the Abbottalypse* dawned foggy and damp. There seem to be people staggering about with their brains leaking and dragging their limbs. The Abbott voters have taken over !
Meanwhile plans being snuck through by the yet to be sworn in Libs.
“A Coalition government would seek to slow or abandon requirements for childcare centres to lift staff to child ratios and employ more highly qualified workers.”
This is the another step on the road to dividing society into haves and have nots. Lower the standards of childcare, pay the workers peanuts and keep the centres poorly serviced. Only the wealthy deserve quality childcare after all. Those childcare workers who don’t want to work for nothing can always apply as nannys for the $75000 children of rich mothers. An ability to iron blue ties is required…
Of further note is a related LNP piece of nastiness –
“Rents for almost 10 per cent of public housing tenants will rise by up to $300 a week under a state government decision to cut discounts.
On Sunday, NSW Minister for Family and Community Services Pru Goward announced the removal of the rent discount for public housing tenants who were not eligible based on their income.
It will mean affected tenants living in a two-bedroom flat in Waterloo will pay an extra $200 a week. In Newtown, rents will rise by up to $245 a week and in Glebe, by up to $300 a week. The rent for a four-bedroom house in Blacktown will increase by $200 a week.”
Time to start hitting the most vulnerable, those whom society has left behind…,
Consider this tweet by Murdoch
“Aust election public sick of public sector workers and phony welfare scroungers sucking life out of economy. Others nations to follow in time.”
Now that Murdoch has the government he wants, its time to direct the hate elsewhere. Who better then the poor and the services they rely upon !
Meanwhile Abbott says of his overlord
“I’ve got a lot of time for Rupert Murdoch because whether you like his papers or don’t like his papers he’s one of the most influential Australians of all time.”
“Aussies should support our hometown heroes, that’s what I think in his own way Rupert Murdoch is.”
Murdoch of course abandoned Australia to become a US citizen in 1985…
To finish up the dubious chant of “mandate” has started being balled around by the Libs.
The numbers of voters for each party and percentage.
|Liberal National LNP||930,842||8.7|
|Country Liberal CLP||36,743||0.3|
|Katter’s Australia KAP||105,901||1.0|
|Palmer United PUP||593,328||5.6|
|Family First FFP||143,711||1.3|
Look at the numbers of people who actually voted for the Libs. Its less then Labor and even combined with the Nats, much less then 50% which would surely be the basic requirement for a mandate.
Yet the Libs and Murdoch are going to start inserting this concept into the zombie masses…
The mandate is the key to bullying parliament into accepting without question the plans that the LNP has kept hidden.
and so day 1 has ended with a smokey haze covering everything…must be the abbott voters burning the hospitals, schools and blowing up NBN connections.
