The next instalment of the debacle known as the Rudd/Gillard/Brown/Wilkie/Oakeshott/Windsor Government will be unveiled on 10 May 2011. It already promises a fair bucket of post-GFC fiscal consolidation. It has already been suggested that there will be job losses across the APS.
As raving leftists, one would ordinarily think Canberrans would generally oppose cuts to the APS (or any fiscal restraint at all, for that matter). However, with rapid population growth, housing affordability and transport issues, others may think this city is bursting at the seams. Old timers tell horror stories of 1996, but the ACT economy just topped the ComSec league table.
