It’s started

Stanthorpe Border Post - - NEWS YOUR SAY -

THE long awaited elec­tion cam­paign is rock­ing ‘n rollin’. Vot­ing will take place on Novem­ber 25. The cam­paign will be short but not nec­es­sar­ily sweet.

Tim Ni­chols has hit the deck run­ning with the LNP’s first prom­ise to re­duce pay­roll tax. And by how much? Up the thresh­old $25,000 a year for the next 10 years. A lot of good that will do. A pin prick if there ever was one. The LNP should be say­ing that they’d abol­ish pay­roll tax al­to­gether. What an im­post on busi­ness to be pe­nalised for hav­ing a wage bill over 1.1 mil­lion and then taxed for em­ploy­ing peo­ple. The LNP should be ad­vo­cat­ing the cre­ation of a state bank to cre­ate credit for the mega pro­jects that are des­per­ately needed.

Dam build­ing is just one of them. All the par­ties will come out with mean­ing­less prom­ises. Why? Be­cause since they have bur­dened us with so many reg­u­la­tions and in­sane laws there is lit­tle space for them to ma­noeu­vre to make worth-while prom­ises to the elec­torate. Seek al­ter­na­tives to the main par­ties! — Jay Nauss
