The new poor my arse

Posted on 27 June 2011

Tony Abbott:

The next Coalition government will build on the Howard legacy of reducing personal income taxes for everyone and especially delivering a fair go for middle income families with children.

As I said in my maiden speech and have been repeating ever since, middle income families with children are Australia’s new poor.

Mate, Australia’s middle income families with children live in horrible monstrosities like this one out in the west of Sydney.

They’re not poor, Tony. They’re middle income families in one of the wealthiest nations on earth.

Here is a picture of the neighbourhood of Australia’s new poor. Funnily enough, they’re Australia’s old poor too. They never went away, you know.

    More like middle income earners are where some wanky polls have told him he needs to focus…
