The working poor are just next in the list, that's all.
I mean, the government have already attacked asylum seekers, immigrants, the disabled, the unemployed and people with too many bedrooms. It's a logical progression. You're on the list, too. Everyone who's not in government or bankrolling the party is. I imagine it will come as a huge surprise when many people who supported the attacks on the previous victim of the week find themselves in the firing line.
And the response from the official opposition is "Well, we'd be a bit nicer. Do the same things, but slower."
Time to man the lifeboats. If you have the chance to break away from this diseased political culture, and have another go at creating a functioning society, do it.
