Voters’ feelings of uncertainty have come back to bite Abbott

Professor Carol Johnson discusses Abbott’s woes (The Conversation, 7.2.15) as he faces a spill.

‘During the 2013 election campaign, Abbott attempted to reassure the electorate that Kevin Rudd’s accusation that a Liberal government would “cut, cut, cut” was a false scare campaign. He infamously assured voters that there would be no ‘ … no cuts to education, no cuts to health, no change to pensions, no change to the GST and no cuts to the ABC or SBS.’
