PEANUTS FOR BAT­TLERS

Pinjarra Murray Times - - OPINION -

AP­PAR­ENTLY the Fed­eral Bud­get will re­turn to sur­plus by the end of the year 2020, if we be­lieve the tooth fairy.

This will be achieved by throw­ing a few peanut de­duc­tions to the fam­ily bat­tlers who will pay more im­post for petrol, elec­tric­ity, wa­ter rates, pub­lic trans­port and coun­cil utopia, while mir­a­cle man Scott Mor­ri­son re­wards the cor­po­rate busi­ness di­rec­tors who al­ways pay min­i­mal tax, if any, in the trickle down econ­omy.

Per­haps France will sup­ply the $64 bil­lion sub­ma­rine con­tract on the lend lease plan, then Ger­many will sup­ply the first batch of ar­moured troop ve­hi­cles in ex­change for the Na­tional Art Gallery col­lec­tion.

Not even Ju­lia Gil­lard and Wayne Swan were ever this cre­ative in deficit hedge fund baloney hum­bug.

Re­cently, Michaelia Cash an­nounced on the ABC new man­u­fac­tur­ing jobs in Gee­long.

Hope­fully she will also stim­u­late the WA econ­omy with the pro­posed Peel busi­ness park. DAVID COOMBS, Halls Head

In the ocean, an­other pro­tected species (Whities) reg­u­larly hunt surfers and swim­mers to eat.

I think the whole point of the chan­nels be­ing dredged in the es­tu­ar­ies at ratepay­ers’ ex­pense is to once again pro­tect and sub­sidise the se­cre­tive City of Man­durah's pro­tected species, the Land Shark. JANEANNE CUM­MING, Fal­con
