KEEP SAYING THE EARTH IS FLAT...sooner or later the odd bogan will believe you!
Labor's continued insistence that Tony Abbott has cut health and education by $80 billion is entirely wrong. What happened was that Julia Gillard, with the assistance of her dodgy little ANU mate Gonsky, had promised $80 billion of funds that were never there and there was never any hope of her or Abbott achieving them, even via borrowed funds. Well not at that stage.
Abbott agreed to meet funding up to and including the forward estimates which covered four years. Gillard's funding dreams extended to ten and twelve years in the future and were an exercise in imaginative futility.
But Gillard knew her re-election was near impossible so she left some ammo in the clip for the Opposition to fire at Abbott.
Just another of her land mines.
