ACCORDING to the Coalition, it has a mandate to implement all aspects of its election platform.
This pre-supposes that anyone who voted for the Coalition directly or had their vote preferenced agreed with every measure the new government wishes to impose.
We all know that this is not correct as, unfortunately, voters cannot cherry pick which party to vote for on the many issues before them.
Prime Minister Tony Abbott turned negativity into an art form when in opposition so he can hardly call “foul” if Opposition Leader Bill Shorten follows the same pathway.
