policies

The Canberra Liberals have just dropped a huge slew of policies:

Today, ACT Opposition Leader Zed Seselja outlined a comprehensive plan to give Canberrans better basic services and lower rates and charges.

We’ll link them in as we get them online. But here are the headlines:

Ok, so we’ve got over a $1 billion of expenditure there. I wonder where they are going to find the money to pay for all that?

Those are some pretty huge cuts to revenue streams for the ACT Government, as well as new spending. Where is the money coming from?

Libs won’t triple your rates

Indeed. They’ll increase them by a factor of x but can guarantee x will not equal 3.

Didn’t see the policy pledge for $100 million for walking cycling, they must be announcing that later!

That $1 billion figure is probably out of a revenue stream of $20 billion or so.

Lotsa stuff here.
I think they would do well (for simple people like me) to have a nice diagram or overview paper showing money in (from where, and what [estimated] amounts), and money out. That way i’d be able to understand if it was all designed to balance (within reason) or not….!
I’m sure it would also help others who don’t trust they’ve done their sums correctly.
From what i can see here it looks like they’ve promised a lot more stuff, while also promising to cut a lot of income (from rates, taxes etc)?

BTW, in principle, the ‘urgent care clinics’ sound like a good idea to reduce ED load….

This is $1 billion of new spending. In order for it to not cost the Territory money, there would either have to be an [i]additional[/i] $1 billion of revenue or an equivalent cut to spending.

That should be required of all parties that could get near the purse strings – Liberal, Labor and Greens.

Not gonna happen.

So the Libs plan to oust Labor by largely ape-ing their policies, kinda like Liberal-Lite I guess? Good luck folks, but you won’t be getting my vote with slimy, smug wankers like Zed at the helm.

I really hope that isn’t the sum of the Liberals public transport policy for the election. Free shuttle bus trial and guided buses ?
