Labor’s 0.1% virtue signalling

Labor’s less than 0.1% ‘boost’ for ‘kids with cancer’

“A Shorten government would give $24 million to continue CanTeen’s Youth Cancer Services program and would also create a $20 million Children’s Cancer Endowment Fund to support research, Opposition Leader Bill Shorten and shadow health minister Catherine King said in a joint statement on Sunday. The fund would include $10 million from the government and $10 million from the Children’s Cancer Foundation, and would fund research projects in children’s cancer”.

That’s pathetic. The $10m is half of 0.1% of the TWENTY BILLION Medical Research Future fund which Tony Abbott would have established had Labor not voted it down.

The LNP established the Medical Research Future Fund anyway.

Shorten and King think that voters don’t know the difference between $20b and $20m.
