Budget reveals path Tony Abbott took into office

The Coalition’s budget reveals that the thinking behind their harsh and inhumane policies towards refugees has now shifted towards the domestic population of Australia. The elderly, students and young people are not behind bars guarded by private security firms. However, as the Treasurer so proudly trumpets, they can no longer feel secure that our nation cares about them, for their health, their future educational chances or for the environment young people, including my grandchildren, will inherit from us. This is not what my father fought for in World War II, nor his uncle in World War I.
