Adam Bandt's response to Pyne's research announcement: if we stare this government down, we can beat them.
Greens Deputy Leader and science and research spokesperson Adam Bandt MP today responded to Christopher Pyne’s backdown on his threat to cut funding for Australian researchers and world-leading facilities.
“The government has blinked, proving that if we stare the Liberals down, they can be beaten.”
“The community clearly values science and research much more than they value the Abbott government.”
“Christopher Pyne’s backdown from his grubby attempts to blackmail the Parliament is a huge win for Australian scientists and researchers.”
