Letter to the Editor
Whyalla wiped off the map, the death of the coal industry, unimaginable cost of living increases, all predicted by the most negative Leader of the Opposition in my living memory. Have they occurred? No, of course they haven’t. This blowhard is not fit to be the Leader of the Opposition, the LNP should elect someone as leader who is more moderate, more sensible, and more realistic and who can organize the LNP to develop a few policies instead of adopting this negative façade.
The Australian economy is second to none at this point in time globally, we are doing well, all the economic indicators are positive, and it is only Tony Abbott who is negative. The Australian community is sick of being told untruths when we are in fact world leaders and should be proud of the way we as a community have responded to the Global Financial Crisis, Mr. Abbott has tried to rob us of the self confidence we so rightly deserve.
The federal Labor government has made a few mistakes as any and every government does, however the low income families and pensioners, while struggling, have had things to help us along the way that we would never have had from a conservative government such as help with the costs of education for our children and help with cost of living matters.
The time has arrived to ignore the negative comments from the Opposition Leader and concentrate on reality for a change. It is the State LNP governments who are hiking the prices of electricity and other cost of living increases, we need to shift focus and demand a better deal from them. When push comes to shove the LNP offer no policies to tackle the issues facing us, their only policy is to attack the wages and conditions of working people, that’s not good enough, create some good policy we approve of or disappear.
