Hi there,

Australia's Prime Minister wants to cut university funding and increase funding for priest training.

Luckily, I came up with a solution where everybody wins!

Dear Prime Minister Tony Abbott,

I just read an article about how you want to cut funding to universities by 20% and spend more money training priests. Under your proposed higher education reforms:

"Religious teaching, training and vocational institutes would be eligible for a share of $820 million in new Commonwealth funding over three years". 

I'm not sure how much it costs to educate a man of God, but $820 million sounds like quite a lot. Now, I know you guys are in a fair bit of debt at the moment, so I've come up with a solution to help you out.

An Open Letter to Prime Minister Tony Abbott...
