When a conservative politician tells you that they’re concerned about the underprivileged, or people adversely affected by the budget don’t believe them for a second.
CHARITY workers again face being stripped of their family tax payments after the Opposition blocked budget legislation containing changes to salary-sacrificing laws.
Given the choice between helping people or using the last week of their Senate majority to frustrate the government, it should surprise no-one that the Coalition went with the latter option.
Don’t believe a single word from these weasels when they claim to care about “ordinary Australians”, they don’t give a shit about anyone. They don’t give a fuck about social equality, they don’t care if pensioners freeze or if carers starve, they’d rather throw tantrums about being kicked out of office than do anything to ensure people’s welfare.
So next time you see a clip of Brendan ‘Emo Man’ Nelson pleading for the welfare of one section of the community or another, just remember that his colleagues would throw them all under a bus if they thought they could get away with it.
Update: Unsurprisingly, this story doesn’t appear to be getting a run at all on news.com.au or The Australian’s web site.
