WHAT planet is Keith Pitt living on? The unemployment rate hit 9.1% on his watch, to keep blaming the Labor party is just a cop out and pathetic. The unemployment rate was high when Paul Neville was the Member for Hinkler when the Labor party was in power and nothing has changed. The work for the dole is not what you would call proper employment is it Mr Pitt? And, it was a failure under the Howard government, that's a fact. This government is plucking at straws and it's blaming the unemployed for its own failure to attract industry to our region. For Mr Pitt to admit that “one of the problems locally was limited job vacancies” is stating the bleeding obvious. It is, Mr Pitt, your job to attract and seek to bring industry to this region. It is a job you are failing at and I think it's time the public took a serious look at who they vote for at the next election. I for one am getting sick of hearing the same tape being played all the time.
