The Australian’s Foreign Editor Greg Sheridan says the “big failure” right now was from the Prime Minister in his ADF funding enhance announcement.
Scott Morrison introduced on Thursday a big funding enhance to the Australian Defence Force by $38 billion to increase the drive.
This will take the variety of defence drive personnel to 80,000 by 2040.
“When a government tells you in detail what it’s going to do in 2040 and how much it’s going to cost in 2040, well I’ll tell you what, I’d like to get lots of goodies for promises which I don’t have to redeem until 2040,” Mr Sheridan advised Sky News Australia.
“The Coalition has been in office for eight and a half years, and where do we stand today?”
