The President supports the decision saying the MP’s acted in an “unruly manner”.

Now the Chief Justice has upheld their suspensions, saying the Supreme Court did not have the power to reverse parliament's decision.

One of the suspended MP’s Roland Kun is now openly referring to the current government as a dictatorship.

Abbott Cuts Hit The Poorest Of The Poor


Julie Bishop and Tony Abbott have slashed aid spending to the poorest people in the world again.

This time they’ve cut $4 billion over the next four years.

This means Australia will now drop from being the 13th most generous nation to the 20th.

The total cut to aid this year is almost $11 billion. That’s almost one third of all budget cuts.

Abbott has now cut overseas aid to its lowest level since 1958.

What a disgrace.
