Why can’t the ABC tell the truth about cunding futs?
ABC presenters are getting all snooty about “funding cuts”.
The ABC has lost $783m in funding since the Coalition came to power in 2014, including the $84m cut in 2018
….. after promising on the eve of the election that there would be no cuts https://t.co/n2yJAqeykt

The ABC has proved in the past 6 months that it’s an essential public service for all Australians. It provides indispensable, reliable help during emergencies, whether fires, floods or pandemic. Defunding it is against the national interest. @ScottMorrisonMP should think again.

It would be nice if they could tell the truth about the cuts – such as the fact that the figure they cits is cumulative. By the way, $148 million is fr a service they no longer provide. That’s not a cut. That’s not getting paid for a job you no longer do. But Alberici isn’t good at maths.
Childcare is a mess
Childcare in Australia is a complete disaster and there is no one in the country smart enough to understand how the system works or how to make the system better.
But one thing is clear, the government (that’s you) can’t keep providing the service for ‘free’ unless there are strict controls over who gets it.
There is a strong case to be made for childcare to be ‘free’ to working families in order to increase participation, especially from women.
Prediction: the government will use this as a bargaining chip when working out a deal with the ACTU.
Budget cuts at the ABC
They can start buy axing ABC Life. However would we survive without this?
