Almost on cue, the conservative premiers went into bat for the PM ( one of them has destroyed TAFE in his state and the other one squandered a mining boom and has left his state an economic basket case) and were even telling the media and the other premiers to stop dwelling on past broken promises! ( By that they mean Abbott and Turnbull's lies from the last election and their obscene 2014 budget) But it was a big victory for common sense and for the Victorian Premier who faced off against the PM and the PM backed down. Still no decision of education funding. That will have to wait until after the election. Turnbull is desperate to have the issue of education funding and the lies they peddled about Gonski at the last election neutralised for the next election. Sadly for them it will not go away but luckily their stupid idea ( not bold or 'pushing the envelope' but ill conceived and STUPID!) about funding state education through new state taxes has been shelved.
