This interview was given to SBS from Penrith football stadium the night before the 2013 Australian Federal Election (6/9/13).

Tony Abbott pledged there would be "no cuts to education, no cuts to health, no change to pensions, no change to the GST and no cuts to the ABC or SBS" under a government he leads.

Since the election Tony Abbott has been under great pressure from conservative elements in the Australian media and within his own party to cut ABC funding and scope of service.

What Tony Abbott does now with ABC (and SBS) funding is a key test to whether or not he runs a government that keeps its promises and commitments to the Australian people.
