La­bor, Lib­eral, etc

Townsville Bulletin - - Text The Editor -

Ian Bragg ( let­ters March 7) tries to pre­tend that John Howard in­tro­duced the GST af­ter an elec­tion. In fact he ran his elec­tion cam­paign based on the GST and was voted in to of­fice. He had the guts to be hon­est. Un­like Ju­liar and the so-called car­bon tax! Ab­bie we Please please please can some­one re­voke Gil­lard’s pass­port so she can’t get back in the coun­try. BH4817. All my work­ing life I was a La­bor voter. So far in my re­tire­ment I have stayed loyal to La­bor, but now that we have a labour Prime Min­is­ter be­ing gov­erned by a green politi­cian I am giv­ing my next vote to the op­po­si­tion. Jack. Proser­pine. So now it’s come down to in­surance ver­sus govt over flood re­spon­si­bil­ity! Seems a lot of the flood­ing in Bris­bane could have been avoided if the dams had dis­charged ear­lier but I sup­pose with it be­ing liq­uid gold these days and be­ing run as a profit or­gan­i­sa­tion and not the free ne­ces­sity in life it once was they thought they would cash in! An­other proud La­bor strat­egy that needs change and should not be charged at an ex­or­bi­tant rate cre­at­ing prob­lems for the av­er­age house­hold! Bob Kelso
