10 Sep Abjorensen is recent history repeating for tony abbott
Abjorensen is recent history repeating for tony abbott. The latest chapter for the man who promised Australia would « end homelessness » and « end poverty » is an abject failure.
For a while, he was able to claim the mantle of a hero. The « war on drugs » was a success. The government’s promise to do away with asylum seekers in Nauru and Papua New Guinea was a success. Abbott even set up an independent inquiry into the deaths in Nauru and Papua New Guinea of asylum seekers.
Then, in 2015, the Coalition made it more difficult to claim the « war on drugs » by rolling back Labor’s « no new detention centres » policy. More than 40 of the 56 detainees brought to Nauru were released from detention without charge or trial, although some remain in detention without charge or trial for long periods of time.
In response, Labor has refused to meet again or even negotiate with the government. The government has responded by saying it has given the evidence against Abbott, and its response to Abbott was not a success.
In the meantime, as the latest government figures show, people who had a past drug charge on their records are not returning to prison or prison violence. The same can’t be said of people charged on minor, unserious charges.
Abbott once claimed he would fight the wars of poverty in the Northern Territory, the Great Lakes, and the Pacific islands.

For Abbott to claim that the war on drugs is a success is to miss the real issue. The Abbott government’s record is that it has failed to act on the very issuatm 카지노es it promises to do so on – a failure that, despite spending hundreds of millions of dollars on the war on drugs, there is no evidence of any effective and significant reduction in crime.
Australia does have an increase in crime and a decline in violence over the past 10 years, but those increases and decreases don’t reflect an increase in the problem, in the population, or in the level of crime overall. Crime has fallen consistently over the past 25 years.
Abbott’s claim that the war on drugs is a success for the most people because it is « not a war on any of us » flies in the face of evidence to the contrary. In a country wher
