One Nation’s Brian Burston threatens budget bills unless ABC funds are slashed
ONE Nation has declared that it will oppose almost all Coalition bills unless it slashes funding to the ABC.
The Australian reports One Nation party whip Brian Burston as saying his party would put $5 billion worth of budget measures in doubt in order to see the ABC’s budget slashed.
He said he had finalised the plan with One Nation leader Pauline Hanson on Monday night.
One Nation would reject “all bills associated with the budget” and media legislation changes, if the broadcaster’s $1 billion a year funding was not cut by $600 million over the forward estimates, he said.
