> Our leader removed the minister for science!
The U.S. doesn't have a secretary for science either. Some countries do, others don't.
> He has reduced funding for our science organization [sic]* CSIRO
organiSation - Australian spelling. Yes this is very unfortunate, as are the ABC funding cuts. Hopefully it's a temporary situation - force an organisation to re-think priorities, then later review. It's an "easy" (for government) way of forcing an organisation to cut things it doesn't really feel are necessary - forcing it to "re-focus". Very clumsy and "blunt instrument" way of doing it (as opposed to an actual independent review) but that's government for you.
> condemned renewable energy
He's said a lot of stupid things, but happily Abbott has now rejected cutting the renewable energy target.
> promoted coal
Because other countries buy it. One can't really tell a country not to market their natural resources.
> destroyed our manufacturing sector
That happened a long time ago, not caused by the current government.
> and is pushing to make university only for the rich.
Not intentionally, but "deregulation" is what the Liberal Party has always been about, like the Republicans in the U.S. People should know that and vote accordingly. You can't blame a party for being what it is. Deregulation should be expected from them, it's not Abbott in particular.
However, Abbott lied through his teeth about all their policies prior to the election, and that you *can* blame a party for. There should be a law to invalidate an election when that happens - how can you have voting and Democracy when politicians do the complete opposite to everything they said up to the election? That's the *real* crime here. If they had been honest and up front about everything before the election, they would not have gotten in at all. That shouldn't be too much to expect in a modern country.
