    The Libs stated on the weekend they will eliminate the school bonus which consists of up to $800 per child attending school.

    They claim it is linked to the 'mining tax'. But ofcourse that is a falsehood.

    Labor is already introducing austerity measures by placing single parents onto the dole instead of the payment that is equivalent to the pension.

    One wonders why pensioners get more than a mother/father raising children etc.

    Anyway, this is the first "blast" of what will be a period of austerity under the Libs. Expect vulnerable families to pay the price. You/me are already on notice that they will eliminate the 'school bonus'.

    This is only the beginning and I expect many more austerity measures from Hockey and Abbott.
