ABC feels pain of broken promise

Sneaky, duplicitous, and vindictive Abbott Government

Professor Brian McNair writes in The Conversation (20.11.14) that several pledges went AWOL after the election. ‘But in this case, the incoming government appeared sneaky and duplicitous, not to mention vindictive towards one of Australia’s most-loved institutions. Even if few expected the Coalition to keep this promise, it damages trust in and respect for government when it is so provocatively shredded.’
