Turnbull/Bishop hand out $500M new overseas aid in past 8 weeks - make Rudd/Gillard look responsible
There's no shortage of feel-good money in Canberra.
That is money to make Turnbull or Bishop feel good.
More than $500M in feel-good money - in just the past 8 weeks.
Were you told we'd be handing out gifts like this?
Who said Iraq should get an extra $110M? Or Yemen $10M? Or Afghanistan a whopping $240M?
These people are worse than Rudd and Gillard - at least with Labor irresponsible spending is to be expected.
Half a billion new dollars - in just 8 weeks!!!!!?????
When did we decide to build a new education system for Myanmar ($71M) or add $40M to The Philippines Islamic system in the autonomous region of Mindanao?
$10M for gender equality, a few million for anti-terror pamphlets - and those hundreds of new millions for the bosses of Iraq and Afghanistan to launder.
The greater tragedy is that while Bishop and Turnbull are off doing this:
.....at home The Smith Family is doing this.
Children cannot choose their circumstances.
For one in seven Australian children and young people growing up in poverty,1 it can limit their choices, opportunities and outcomes in life. Investing in the education of a disadvantaged child delivers long-term positive benefits for them, their family and potentially generations to come.
