As a self proclaimed children’s author, I look up to and admire a whole bunch of other Australian children’s authors and have a huge amount of respect for them. I also follow them on social media and it just so happens that they are all left wing, tree hugging rainbow hippies who hate Tony Abbott. And that’s fine, I love that about them. It just means I have to put up with their political opinions every damn time I go online. But that’s neither here nor there.
Lately, they’ve all been moaning about budget cuts to the ABC and I thought this would be a great opportunity for me to finally chime into the political landscape armed with as much knowledge of it as my children’s author peers (none).
So, here is an open letter to our Prime Minister Tony Abbott about the recent ABC cuts. Tony, if you could help me out by responding someway, I really feel that would greatly help cement my “children’s author” status.
