The Government will push ahead with a plan to pay a portion of Tony Abbott’s salary on a new cashless debit card, in an attempt to stop taxpayer money funding the former PM’s drinking habit.

Calling it an ‘act of love’, Malcolm Turnbull said the new card – which would be blocked for alcohol purchases – may be the only way to stop Mr Abbott using his wages for drinking.

“This is the right thing to do for Tony, and it’s the right thing to do for the taxpayer. It’s unreasonable for someone who is be paid from taxpayer funds to be using those funds for large quantities of alcohol, and then turning up to work drunk”.
