How Abbott rewards the IPA: part 2

Freelance journalist Andrei Ghoukassian and former Crikey senior journalist Andrew Crook have sifted through all 100 policies promoted by the Institute of Public Affairs and found the Abbott government has promised quite a few of them.

How closely has the Abbott government aligned itself with the right-wing Institute of Public Affairs? Crikey first looked at the IPA’s 100-point wishlist and compared it to Tony Abbott’s pre-election promises. Now, with the government halfway through its first term, we are revisiting that list.

Yesterday, we looked at the first 25 policies, including means-testing Medicare and the repeal of 18C. How do the next 25 stack up?
