Interesting article on the Drum by Greg Jericho on the realities of the LNP’s job cuts and the Parliamentary Budget Office’s upcoming costings report.
Have a read if you’ve got the time, and the interest.
The contested nature of the policy highlighted the lack of details provided by the Liberal Party to the public. The ALP claimed the real number was 20,000 and that it wouldn’t deliver the savings which the Liberal Party suggested it would. The Liberal Party, for its part, suggested the cuts would all come through “natural attrition”.
But as it did not release its costings we still don’t actually know how the Government intends to meet its target.
