Car­bon copy

Townsville Bulletin - - Text The Editor -

For the 1998 cam­paign Howard pro­posed a GST and formed gov­ern­ment with sup­port of the Democrats. As John May­nard Keynes said ‘‘ when the facts change I change my opin­ion, what do you do?’’. This is noth­ing like PM Gil­lard’s ac­tion re the car­bon tax and to sug­gest so is du­plic­i­tous. Galen Ayr Get ready to live like cave peo­ple if Gil­lard’s car­bon tax be­comes a re­al­ity. Any­one who voted La­bor should hang their heads in shame. Car­bon crap! An­gry 4850 AJS Deer­a­gun; There is one glar­ing dif­fer­ence, when Howard did de­cide to push for a GST, he told the vot­ers and went to the elec­tion on that plat­form, un­like Ju’liar Gil­lard who stated 48 hours be­fore vot­ing day there would be no car­bon tax. Ron Kelso. To AJS. John Howard ac­tu­ally went to an elec­tion with the GST on the ta­ble & got elected. La­bor wasn’t even elected in the last poll but slith­ered into power with the help of two snakes! Car­bon tax will rel­e­gate Oz into 3rd world sta­tus & let’s all hear the ide­ol­ogy get us out of that predica­ment! CO2 4814 How about the fed­eral op­po­si­tion car­ry­ing on over this car­bon tax & how Gil­lard is a liar, doesn’t Ab­bott re­mem­ber his for­mer leader whom said there would never ever be a GST peo­ple have short mem­o­ries. What is the is­sue about a gov­ern­ment @ any level be­ing in debt, if money needs to be spent on things then it needs to be spent, that is the role of a gov­ern­ment, when will peo­ple in­clud­ing all lev­els of gov­ern­ment re­alise they are not busi­nesses, they rep­re­sent the peo­ple @ any cost. Jack 4811.
