Before yesterday the vote of the 18 to 25s was about 64 Labor, 36 Coalition two party preferred. To be told that a university education is now unaffordable, and an old age pension forbidden if the house you paid for is any good, is an act of terrorism that like the slowly crumbling South Tower will ache in the memory of our people for decades.
You do not do this. You do not breach trust on this scale, after saying ‘No cuts to education’. You do not even threaten, as Joe has, to toy with the idea.
What utter fools they are. The vote tomorrow in that age group will be 75 Labor, 25 Coalition.
And so it goes.
