Broken promises: ABC under attack (Australia)


Remember when, on election eve, Prime Minister Tony Abbott told Australia there’d be no cuts to the ABC or SBS? Or how he declared his a: “no surprises, no excuses” government; assuring us there’d be “no broken promises”?

From ‘GetUp Australia’, this video, hopefully an embarrassment to our esteemed leader who seems to suffer from memory lapses. That, or else, a compulsion to lie to the Australian people.

    There are many worrying signs for Australians when seeing varying and contradicting messages coming from the government. We really don’t know what to expect next.

    At first, I was surprised by the initial indications, but nothing surprises me anymore.
    That I’m no longer surprised, worries me; have I been conditioned by this new government?

    The ABC is cherished by many Australians, and it would be a brave (or foolish) government which cut the funding, or tampered in any way with the ABC’s operation.

    There have been strong media comments alluding to the containment of what the ABC can say and can’t say. There are strong voices who would totally contain the output of the ABC. Others would just like to see the ABC shut down altogether.

    This is a major concern to free thinking Australians who would not like to see their ABC end, as depicted in this cartoon . . . . . . . . .

    • Thanks for your comment Mick.
      I agree that there is much to be concerned about.
      I would conclude that neither government and/or minor parties are deserving our trust.
      They seem to be controlled by outside influences like IMF and the global warming group.
      Regards, Ken.
