    He'll just add a levy or some other stealth tax.

    Small business tax cut and instant asset write-off, reduced future subsidies to electricity generators, signed the ChAFTA and managed to keep the growth in Federal Government spending over the past 12 months below 1.6%?

    The reality:
    * ChAFTA - half baked, lopsided trade agreement that screws over Australians.
    * Inneffective small business tax cut where the majority of small business will gain no benefit.
    * Has gone on a debt binge, increasing debt by 35% since he took office.
    * An energy policy that fails to face reality.
    * Record spending levels on flags.

    OMG, the flags!

    The $502,000 spend on flags coincided with the national terrorism alert level rising to high over IS threats, high-profile terrorist raids in Brisbane and Sydney and the Lindt Cafe siege in Martin Place

    Abbott and his 10 flag-level bullshit...

    I don't support the Liberal Party, I don't like them. It's that I can't tolerate the Labor Party and their union controllers, their basis in violence and corruption and their fake Socialism. Don't call me a Liberal supporter, I would only vote for them as a "best of a bad bunch" choice.

    Shorten is a thug and has a history of violence surrounding him that is unmatched in politics.

    Nice speech from a man who has just been caught out throwing workers under the bus to fund his own political aspirations.

    This Liberal government is lame, and a hostile senate makes them useless. If Labor and Shorten take the next election then it will be interesting to watch the continuation of what Rudd and Swan started and the poor of Australia gradually realise that they have voted themselves into joblessness and poverty. The main difference is that the decline into poverty will happen much, much faster with Labor.

    Correct. The question is just how quickly it will unfold.

    I took a black texta in there and carefully drew an extra box at the end of the row and wrote "Han Solo" under it and ticked the box.

    Disagree with every "objection". Complete unilateral cuts to barriers is preferable but any progress toward this is better than none.
    Are you saying you are against the tax cuts or just wish they had applied to every business?
    And yet expenditure growth was the slowest in many years.
    Link didn't work for me. I presume it's some rent seeking nonsense arguing to maintain the subsidies. Morons.

    Agree. The Libs should be considering just how much of a wipeout they're prepared to accept with Abbott taking them to the polls. All the papers are full of "worst Prime Ministership since..... " but with the hard Right firmly in control of the party it is hard to see them finding an alternative.

    Interesting. I think it was Kim Beazley who said something to the effect that the ALP was formed by the cream of the working class and now tries to appeal to the dregs of the middle class. It's increasingly obvious that party politics is anathema to representative politics.

    Maybe the Blues don't want to win at the next election?

    The world economy is going to make it hard for the reds or the blues if they get elected.
