Education minister Christopher Pyne was on Sky News yesterday, talking about his decision to separate the $150 million for science funding from the rest of the government’s education reforms.
Speaking with David Speers, Pyne went to great – and awkward – lengths to make sure everybody know he had “fixed” the problem.
“I’ve dealt with it,” he says.
“I fixed it.
“I’m a fixer.
“I’ve fixed it by funding it in another way…”
Speers wanted to know how. Pyne’s not telling.
“I want it to be a surprise for you,” the minister says, laughing
Today Pyne announced a proposed 20% cut to university funding will be separated from the key plank of his tertiary education reforms. Read more about that here.
