There are piles of election guff blowing about that we’re not really bothering to pass on to you guys because it’s very dull, mostly inconsequential, and we’re all a bit sick of it. But here’s a quick rundown with the most honest answers you’re likely to see and those who care can knock themselves out in the comments.
- — Should the Liberals give their costings to Treasury? Probably
— Will someone in Treasury corruptly hand over information to their mates in the Labor party? Probably
— Does this justify the Liberals dragging the chain? Maybe
— Will rates triple? Over a long enough timeframe, yes, over not dis-similar timeframes we’re all dead.
— Will your income grow fast enough to pay for the increasing rates without messing with your life? For some of you yes, for others no.
— Could Labor have done any of the plethora of things they’re promising over the preceding decade+ of Government? They really should have.
— Could the machinery of ACT Government function more efficiently? It is hard to believe improvements could not be made (the Actew patronage machinery is particularly troubling, but all parties seem to rather like the idea)
OK, those who care feel free to vent.
