“The result is an embarrassment for a conservative government that prides itself on fiscal discipline and criticized excess spending by the then-Labor government during the 2008-09 financial crisis.”
There’s an understatement if I ever saw one..
Aside from making the conservative government look idiotic economically (I’d argue that they are going for the ‘clean sweep’ - i.e. making themselves look like idiots in every policy category 😛) it seems indicative of this government’s inability to make relevant policy and then legislate to accurately enact it.
This government (and I don’t really care what ‘colour’ they are politically - red, blue, pink or green 😛) has managed to spend their decade ‘in power’ achieving virtually ‘feck all’.. this news round just adds to the list of damning indictments I think..
Buggered if I know 😛
