I will start by talking about the benefits of scrapping the Carbon tax. The carbon tax significantly adds to the cost of living, it makes many people pay more for electricity and gas, it costs businesses more to operate, and it makes everything in Australia much more expensive. Our cost of living is unnecessarily higher because of the carbon tax.
Average families will be better of by more than $550 only next year under the Liberal"s plan than under Labor"s carbon tax. Over the next six years we will be $3,000 better off under the Liberals than under the carbon tax.
And on the Government"s own figures, the carbon tax will increase six times in the middle of 2014-2019 " reaching about $38 a tonne by 2019 and slowly increasing to $350 a tonne.
Only the Liberals will scrap the carbon tax lock.
On 5 August 2013 Tony Abbott, wrote to the Secretary of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet to advise him that if the Liberals did win the election in September 2013, their first priority will be to scrap the carbon tax.
Only the Liberals will reduce your cost of living by abolishing the carbon tax.
Australia's next problem that the Coalition have dealt with are Asylum seekers risking their lives coming to Australia by boat. Thousands of refugees have come to Australia by boat seeking asylum over the past decade. The main reasons why this is happening is because in the countries the refugees are from there have been war, civil unrest and persecution. Many people have arrived leaving from Indonesia en route to Christmas Island, an Australian territory close to Indonesia. The boats are often overcrowded and unsafe. Accidents are very common. In December 2010, a boat of refugees sank, killing 48 people some of them even children then again In June 2012, an accident led to 17 confirmed deaths, with 70 other people missing most of these never to be found and heard of ever again. Since 2009 more than 600 deaths have occurred to refugees trying to come to Australia. Here are some figures of how many people came to Australia by boat during the main Labor years.
Years Boats People
2010 134 6,555
2011 69 4,565
2012 278 17,202
2013 300 20,587
All this just had to be stopped and Tony Abbott has provided that by putting the Stop the boats plan into action and has succeeded very well so this is why I believe that Tony Abbott has been a great Prime Minister and I believe will continue to be.
