Is this the winning compromise on paid parental leave?

From the high of Abbott’s generous promise to the low of Joe Hockey’s galling scheme, an increase from 18 weeks to 20 weeks in paid leave falls somewhere in the middle: it is not a substantial progression, but nor is it as regressive as it could have been.

. . . the understanding upon which Australians have voted in regards to paid parental leave for the past five years has borne barely any resemblance to the policy they are likely to receive.
