Despite having suffered an embarrassing vote of no confidence from 39 members of his backbench, Tony Abbott looks set to push ahead with his savage cuts to pensioners, families and young jobseekers.
Despite claiming that he has listened and learnt, it is clear that nothing has changed.
This is the same Tony Abbott that delivered the worst budget in living memory.
And Tony Abbott is sticking by his cruel policies.
Tony Abbott still wants to cut the indexation arrangement for the pension
He still wants to slash $5.5 billion from family payments.
And he still wants to leave young people with nothing to live off for six months.
Tony Abbott doesn’t care about protecting the living standards of low and middle income Australians.
All Tony Abbott cares about is saving his own skin.
It doesn’t matter who runs the Liberal party, it’s their policies that need to go.
Tony Abbott, Julie Bishop and Malcolm Turnbull all voted to cut the pension.
They all voted to increase the eligibility age of the Age Pension to 70.
They all voted for $5.5 billion worth of cuts to family payments.
They all voted to leave young jobseekers with nothing to live on.
The only way to protect Australians from Tony Abbott’s budget is to get rid of this Government.
