    So a by the book Liberal budget then. Nothing for Newstart, in fact they've gone the other way and culled Human Services jobs (because that's what Centrelink needed, more cuts), a blowjob for the elderly and well off, you know the ones that haven't voted Labor since the 60's, a measly 10 bucks a week for everyone else....Oh, and of course a little kick to the shins for the ABC on the way out the door lol

    If Turnbull thinks this is gonna turn his polling around, he's living in a bubble within another bubble.

    That's because your tax is needed to pay the 175 billion welfare bill

    Religious charities. We can start by opening an Islamic school across the road from Smack’s house.

    Oh well, I will wait.

    Looks like Centrelink won't be able to justify those 1500 odd jobs..

    The work they do sill not disappear, it will simply be outsourced.

    Now that may be a good thing depending upon your point of view, however all it really does is move expenditure from one column to another.
