Is this what we really want from government?
What has happened to the Liberal party?
Why have progressives (you know - those that believe in progress
) been leaving the Liberal party in droves?
In a century of uncertainty, facing increasing costs of climate change and rising energy prices, Tony Abbot offers us:
- Solar development funding, dropped.
- Funding pulled out of urban rail projects across Australia.
- Broadband a fraction of the speed enjoyed by our Asian neighbours.
Yes, its coal, concrete freeways and second-class internet for Australia.
This is the ‘rear-view vision’ of Tony Abbott, our likely prime-minister for the next 9 years.
Q: But what would Malcolm do?
A: None of the above!
“The goal here is to ensure that ‘as the old order changeth yielding place to new’ Australians are riding the waves of innovation not buried in a sand bar as they break” - Malcolm Turnbull.
“It's not a 24-hour news cycle, it's a 60-second news cycle now, it's instantaneous. It has never been easier to get away with telling lies. It has never been easier to get away with the glib one liner.” - Malcolm Turnbull.
“All Australians understand that high-quality, reliable and affordable broadband is a critical part of the infrastructure our nation needs to prosper in coming years.” - Malcolm Turnbull.
“Climate change is a global problem. The planet is warming because of the growing level of greenhouse gas emissions from human activity. If this trend continues, truly catastrophic consequences are likely to ensue from rising sea levels, to reduced water availability, to more heat waves and fires.“ - Malcolm Turnbull.
Now wouldn’t you like to live in a country run by this guy?
In 2009, Malcolm lost the leadership to Tony Abbot by just one vote
Now we face 9 years of Abbott
, and a Liberal Party changed forever.
We can bring Mal back.
