The new poor my arse

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.
