ENVY POL­I­TICS IN SHORTEN’S BUD­GET

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - OPINION -

Mi­randa Devine’s ar­ti­cle re­veal­ing the Op­po­si­tion leader’s du­plic­ity is very timely (“Shorten shows he’s a silly sausage”, 13/5).

It un­cov­ers the dis­crep­an­cies in the Labor pro­pos­als in the Bud­get re­ply speech and the false de­fence of his MPs not be­ing dual cit­i­zens.

It was also en­cour­ag­ing to see the ap­pro­pri­ate con­dem­na­tion from Fi­nance Min­is­ter Mathias Cor­mann about Bill Shorten’s record as a politi­cian who is run­ning a bla­tant, dis­hon­est, pop­ulist po­lit­i­cal agenda based on the pol­i­tics of envy.

There is an ur­gent need now for the Coali­tion to con­tinue to ham­mer Mr Shorten by ex­pos­ing the weak­nesses in the Labor poli­cies and call­ing to ac­count all the pro­pos­als they put for­ward. We don’t want an­other “Medi­care” fairy­tale! BRIAN KEIGHRAN
