Tomorrow is polling day for the #EdenMonaro Votes by-election. After spending time with @KristyMcBain , the choice is clear. Vote to send a message about bushfire recovery. Vote to send a message about cuts to the ABC. Vote to send this incredible local woman to parliament.
Yep, we will. Whether you’re learning with Play School, listening to the cricket on Grandstand, or watching the local news at night — the ABC is there for all of us. It’s time we had a government that was there for them. #abc #auspol
We’ve seen the Nationals talk a big game before, and then roll over when push comes to shove. It's hard enough as it is for regional kids to get an education. These changes would make it even harder. Time to take a stand, @The_Nationals #auspol @dailytelegraph
Retail workers have worked tirelessly despite the risks during this crisis. To say thanks, Scott Morrison has stood by and done nothing while their penalty rates are cut and pay is frozen. #auspol @unionsaustralia
What the Liberals said: We’ll fix the shortage of psychologists we saw during the bushfires. What the Liberals did: jacked up fees for psychology degrees by $30,000. @ScottMorrisonMP : marketing slogan one day, nasty detail the next. You can’t trust him. #auspol
The Liberals promised their uni changes would fix skill shortages - like the shortage of psychologists during the recent bushfires. Instead they’ve increased the cost of psychology degrees by $30,000. Everything @ScottMorrisonMP says is a marketing con. #auspol
BREAKING: Unbelievable. The Liberals have just blocked our motion in the Senate to extend JobKeeper to uni staff AGAIN. I can’t say I’m surprised, but I’m definitely disappointed. 21,000 jobs are at stake but they just don’t care. #auspol
The Liberals have spent seven years creating a tradie crisis in Australia – with $3 billion cut from TAFE and training, widespread skills shortages, and 140,000 apprentices and trainees gone.
Last week @ScottMorrisonMP claimed his uni changes would promote maths + engineering. Now we’ve got the details, we know the opposite is true. His changes actually *cut* funding to maths + engineering courses. How can we trust anything this man says? @australian @RichAFerguson
