The truth is never disposable
WHAT a laugh these replies from the Liberal troglodytes.
In the 1998 elections most Australians voted against the GST – two party preferred 49.02 per cent Liberal, 50.98 per cent Labor, but the biggest joke of all is it only got through parliament with the help of t he Democrats, sound f amiliar, Greens supporting Labor, Democrats supporting Liberals.
The difference here is that Howard promised tax cuts and heaps of goodies to the states, now we have almost mass hysteria from the Liberals before they even know the details of a carbon ‘‘ fee’’ if you are paranoid with the word ‘‘ tax’’.
And what a comedy the opposition is, arguing about something when you have no clue to what will be in the final details. But for lies one can’t go past ‘‘ weapons of mass destruction’’.
Howard supported that notion and lied continually to the Australian public.
Show me details of Howard telling us all before the last election anything regarding Work Choices, somewhat of a secret in Liberal ranks.
The unthrown children overboard, lies; there will be a reduction in private health, fees have risen over 21 per cent, lies.
Howard also said this and what a load of rubbish this is and it applies to all politicians: ‘‘ Truth is absolute, truth is supreme, truth is never disposable in national political life.’’ IAN BRAGG,
