Sterner Stuff

I don't know where this originated. It popped up on Twitter a few days ago, and I thought it was worth preserving...

Apologies that the image isn't clearer. The fuzzy list of words down the left hand side is a list of government achievements - see below.

Introduced the Mining Tax
Deployed NBN
Increased Super Contributions to 12%
Unemployment half the world average
Lowest interest rates in 60 years
Lowest Government debt of all Triple A rated economies
Introduced National Disability Insurance Scheme
63 new regional cancer centres
New medical funding programme
Public Dental Health Scheme
Doubled funding to health
Doctor training places doubled
Double funding to education
Supported Conscience Vote on gay marriage
Infrastructure budget tripled
AAA Credit Rating from all three global ratings agencies
Banning mortgage exit fees on new loans
$2.2b Mental Health package

I doubt this came from the ALP; it doesn't look like something they'd do, but it's definitely a list of achievements that the ALP's spin doctors have failed to sell to the Australian people.


  1. Ohh yesss!!!!!! So good!

  2. I'm not a big fan of Julia's (rest assured, I'm even less of a fan of Tony's!), but it is a shame this list hasn't been more widely publicised. while aware of some of these achievements, I'm certainly not aware of them all. But now I am, so thanks.
