Mulcahy Canberra Party:
Richard Mulcahy’s striking out for clear air with a holiday Monday tax policy announcement. The highlights of this are repealing the Utilities Tax and repealing the Fire and Emergency Services Levy. Richard wants to be the candidate promising to spend less.
The Canberra Times reports that Labor is accusing Liberal of pinching their Indigenous affairs policy. Well what’s good for the goose eh?
Labor’s media release has now wended its way online.
Andrew Barr is leaping adroitly on the bandwagon of the junior Raider’s grand final win.
In the Canberra Times John Hargreaves is defending ripping the bins out of the Murrumbidgee leisure spots because it will encourage people to take their rubbish home with them. Some of the people maybe, but all of them?
John Hargreaves also gets a run in the ABC suggesting that concerns toxic waste is going into landfill is merely a “campaign ploy”.
Jon Stanhope has told the Canberra Times that if he gets another go he’ll give ACT public servants 18 weeks paid maternity leave. He says this will give us the “most generous public-sector scheme in the country”. Apparently that’s a good thing. If you’d like more detail on this the announcement is finally online.
James Sizer is mightily feared for the fate of Canberra should a Government be formed reliant on Green support. Would he prefer majority Government? Or is he suggesting CAP would make for a better balance of power?
Jane Tullis is worried that the dreaded “American School Expert”, Joel Klein, will be coming to Canberra to end civilisation.
