Wish I could write to my local member (Lib) and give him a serve of my mind, unfortunately as a journalist it would be used against me if he ever felt my reporting was bias - makes it very hard to have a personal view

Capitalism needs a level of unemployment to function. Here's another perspective - we should be thanking the unemployed to prop up the system!!

I just can't believe the pollies are talking about this in terms in a middie of beer or a couple of coffees. It's horrifying to think of the impact the changes to the dole eligibility for young people will have. And at the same time there's extra funding for chaplains in schools??? They'll have their work cut out for them comforting the hungry children
I'm not very clear on what will happen next though. I read that there's not a lot of support for the budget in parliament, and the opposition will strongly oppose it. So does that mean there is a chance that some or all of these measures won't get passed? If there's enough opposition, can the budget fail? Or is that just hopeful thinking.

Yes, if a number of them are blocked, which labor, Greens and Cliver Palmer have said they will, it go to a Double Dissolution and another election

See, I totally agree that young people should be earning or learning. If kids under 25 aren't employed they should be in some kind of education. The government will support young people so long as they are earning or learning. Sounds fair.
