Australians are being reminded that the Government of Australia has being lying to them.
The Australian Labor Party has started a campaign reminding Australians of what was promised by Tony Abbott and the Liberal-National Party before the election and what has happened since.
Such promises before the election were: “no cuts to education, no cuts to health, no changes to pensions, no change to the GST, and no cuts to the ABC or SBS.”
Today’s lie that has been presented is, before the election Tony Abbott and Christopher Pyne both promised that the Liberal-Nationals would match Labor’s funding for schools dollar for dollar. Abbott told voters it was a “unity ticket” with Labor’s commitment to increase education funding.
Instead what Australians have seen is $30 Billion cut from schools and school funding reform, Gonski, scrapped.
