The Abbott/Turnbull/Abbott? government will be remembered, if at all, as the government who won’t.
They won’t put a price on carbon.
They won’t tax mining companies on their superprofits.
They won’t offer safe haven to asylum seekers that come by boat.
They won’t fund needs-based education.
They won’t honour the hospital funding agreement.
They won’t protect Australian industries.
They won’t pay for research into climate change.
They won’t close the gap on indigenous disadvantage.
They won’t build public transport.
They won’t allow marriage equality.
They won’t increase the superannuation guarantee or pay a low income co-contribution.
They won’t allow judicial appeal of Ministers’ decisions.
They won’t run a surplus or reduce the debt.
They won’t allow journalists or doctors to speak of the conditions on Manus and Nauru.
They won’t allow public servants to criticise the government.
They won’t accede to Freedom of Information requests or court directions of disclosure.
They won’t extend marine parks or the Murray-Darling buyback scheme.
They won’t allow secular counsellors to take part in the school chaplaincy program.
They won’t ask people to justify the business usage they claim for their car.
They won’t regulate the financial sector.
They won’t fund NGOs.
They won’t reduce defence spending.
They won’t tackle the overly generous tax concessions to the wealthy.
They won’t stop profit-shifting or investment in tax havens.
And they would never ever in a million years knife a sitting Prime Minister … or at least not twice. Would they?
