Far from his claimed “year of great achievement”, all Malcom Turnbull has delivered on child care is another year of delay.
His decision in this year’s budget to push back additional investment in early education and care means there will be no relief to families until mid-2018, despite the Liberals’ promises.
A child born when the Liberals promised more affordable child care will be in school before anything changes. Families can’t afford to wait that long.
On top of his delays, Malcolm Turnbull plans to spend billions of taxpayers’ dollars to make one in three families worse off – another example of his extraordinary ability to stuff everything up.
