My Lifestyle Choice or Yours?

12 March 2015

Tony Abbott is supporting a West Australian Government proposal to stop supplying any services to 100 remote Aboriginal communities because, in his words, “we can’t endlessly subsidise lifestyle choices”. 

Australian Aborigines have lived in these areas for tens of thousands of years. And of course the Government supplies services for my “lifestyle choices” (I choose to live on the Central Coast of NSW). 

I think Mike Carlton had the best response (on Twitter):  “If the Government isn’t into subsidising ‘lifestyle choices’, maybe it could start taxing churches”.

Hear, hear.
