Their MO is always the same, kick back for the super rich, run the country in permanent austerity, cut back on all government services. Here in WA, when the Barnett government came to power in 2008 the state debt was $3.7 billion, now budget predicted a $47 billion debt by 2023. They are now drastically cutting back everywhere, when they have been sailing over a 10-year mining boom, our utilities have skyrocketed. Who benefited from the mining boom? I guess we know the answer.

Gina Rinehart is so happy about the new government.

“BILLIONAIRE mining magnate Gina Rinehart flew Coalition MPs, including the Liberal Party's deputy leader Julie Bishop and Nationals Senate leader Barnaby Joyce, to take part in a sumptuous three day-wedding of a prominent Indian industrialist in Hyderabad. Ms Rinehart took the Canberra delegation by private jet to a Reddy family wedding earlier this week.”

The party for the top rich has already begun.

I think it's about the same everywhere.

Certainly the same.  The point with this one is that the Coalition (transpose Republicans) while in opposition used exactly the same issue to try to bring down the sitting gov..  None of it ever really stuck though.  Now Abbot (PM) is guilty and going on as though it is nothing.  Our right wing is as much a farce as the right in America but then they are both propped up and puppets of Rupert Murdoch and both live by the Fox doctrine.
