Cash and independence for the old tart of Harris Street!
Labor has confirmed its previous promises of an extra $106 million for Auntie's budget, and "independence".
For "independence" read "weakening the existing limited avenues of accountability through the ABC Board and external review". Do not expect a return to licence fees, or any other kind of hypothecated revenue.
