26 mins. Christine Milne's budget reply speech. I've never listened to a budget reply speech. I've never felt the need to listen to, or read about a budget ... till this year.
She explains the impacts clearly - "you've been shafted" "devastating" "medieval attacks on science" "irresponsible" "research must be funded, but not from the pockets of the rich" "broken trust" duplicity" "trapped by a government with no vision" she explains the lie of the budget emergency. (There's an interesting quote from Hockey at about 15 mins. ) I was horrified to hear the estimates of course costs and how long it'll take to pay back the loan fees - assuming you can get a job.
Whether you're a Greens voter or not this is well worth listening to. #budgetfail #lnpfail #christinemilne #greens #onetermtony
