Alan Tudge’s Robodebt RC performance akin to pulling teeth

Will Tudge go down as Australia’s worst ever appointed Minister beating Peter Dutton who was voted worst ever Health, Immigration, and Homeland Security?

And at this point, with the discussion of the onus, it is worth reflecting that a pernicious feature of the scheme is that it simply externalised the department’s work to make the government of the day – and numbers in its budget – look better and to garner favourable media coverage. Of course, the stress, heartache and effort borne by welfare recipients targeted by the program well and truly eclipsed any savings in the Government’s budget.

There was not much point in the program at all if it both failed and didn’t win the Government favourable media coverage.
