I commented on ABC Gippsland because there were people saying how bad TA would be...here's my comment and a reply. What do you think?
Jen Graham I cannot believe how many people there are who say they will vote for the most corrupt conniving govt. Australia has ever known. I was there when Whitlam was voted out and this situation is far worse. I was there when Keating was voted out and I didn't think it could get worse than that (our business went broke) but it is far worse. Wake up people leave labor in charge and nothing will save Australia. Think of our great country when you are voting.
Royce Moncur Simplistic Jen. The pendulum swings. Howard and Costello continued to sell our profitable assets to fund tax cuts [read ' bribes to voters'] and then went on to use the tax windfall from mining to buy votes. Meanwhile Labor comes in and builds up the social supports the community needs. This takes money... taxes. Then we reach a point where the debt level worries the uninformed and out they go. Get ready for the country to be shut down under Abbott. "Corrupt conniving".... apart from normal political push and shove, that's not true... or at least no difference between the parties. Get some balance.
Also from Royce,
