    As fear continues to mount within the aged and disabled community of Australia as to how severely the LNP Abbott government will punish us for having the temerity to survive long enough to collect a meager pension after in many cases having paid many decades of income tax to governments which has been used to build roads, schools and hospitals among a myriad of other public infrastructure.
    This act of treachery from the ultra-conservative government who it seems are manufacturing and trying hard to sell a ‘budget-crisis’ situation in order to put into practice their extremist policies for the only apparent reason, to see them in operation, as they certainly are not required to remedy a budget crisis which does not exist. Australian Debt v GDP ratio is much lower than most of our trading partners, and indeed we would not be in such a fortunate position without the former Labor government’s actions during the Global Financial Crisis whose effect, still lingers with us as it does with the rest of the globe. A sensible approach to the repayment of loans needs to be had for the sake of the Australian population, austerity is not needed and not welcomed, nor has it produced the desired result anywhere in the world that it has been instituted.
    If in fact we had such a ‘budget crisis’ how the LNP government would be able to spend an extra $24 Billion on JSF-35 Stealth jet fighters to protect the assets of the rich in this nation is beyond much of the Australian population? They (the LNP) are certainly not interested in protecting ordinary Aussies health and education; they are in fact anticipating selling these public utilities along with electricity in Queensland, off to the highest bidder, of course at a bargain basement price to one of their ‘rich’ LNP mates. The LNP are working hand in hand, State and Federal to rid this nation of any public enterprise which contributes to the welfare of Australian citizens, whilst allowing at least $60 Billion per year go to overseas tax havens so that rich individuals and multinational companies can avoid paying the correct amount of tax to the nation from where this income is produced, why?
    The truth of the matter is that since they took office last September, it is they who have added at least $12 Billion to our public debt (deficit), yet they try to blame the previous government? We have heard Treasurer Hokeidonian (Hockey) say that the age of entitlement is over, why then is the LNP government continuing to subsidize diesel petrol to the tune of tens of billions of dollars to multi-billion dollar mining companies, while pensioners who are already struggling are attacked with new charges as varied as co-payment to see a GP to a fee to have our mail delivered. This is a ‘mean& tricky’ bad government. Keeping the elderly and infirm in suspense takes a huge toll psychologically on we pensioners, only a mean and nasty political party would do such a thing to the helpless and vulnerable people who are supposedly in their care.
    I have watched the news items on TV and have read my local daily newspaper every day, but unless I have missed it, so far I have not seen a news item which explains what it is, that the government is expecting from multi-millionaires and billionaires in this nation, surely those who have the capacity to pay more tax should be prepared to do so, after all Treasurer Hokeidonian (Hockey) did say ‘everyone’ had to help? The assault on us pensioners and those on the minimum wage, actually abolishing the minimum wage for the benefit of unscrupulous employers, are the actions of a disgraceful unAustralian government.

    Hi,

    My name is Alan Howell, and I am writing to ask if you would consider assisting me by publishing the below material.

    The AIM Network has already run this on the 5th of October, and I am approaching all independent Australian news sites asking that they consider doing likewise.
    Like many people I have become increasingly disillusioned with the current state of Australian politics. Unlike many people I have decided that it is time for someone to attempt to correct the direction we have taken and move us towards a better option with better outcomes for all Australians.
    To do this I am attempting to create a new political party to contest the next Federal elections nationally. I would ask that you look at the attached links to my website and Facebook page to see what you think of us and our policies, and if you too believe that we are heading in a positive direction then I ask that you promote our party and the associated links.
    We are attempting to get the required 500 members to complete our AEC registration and your support would help us immensely in this goal.

    The Equal Australia Party stands for one thing – Australia.
    For its citizens, its sovereign lands, its environment, its fauna, and its flora. To advance our nations interests in all fields of endeavour, and to provide all Australians the opportunities and benefits commensurate with living in a world leading economy.
    We intend to achieve this through adopting worlds best practices and where required by developing our own.
    Our priority is to bring honesty, clarity, and accountability back into our political and social structure that has increasingly appeared to have been forgotten.
    Our goal is to reform the existing political system – to remove greed and personal gain from the underlying agenda for those in power – for the benefit of this country and its people both now and in the future.
    We want the Australian people to have an active, ongoing input into the matters that define Australia and its behaviours, and to participate in the implementation of the agreed actions.
    We represent our nation’s future – our children – to ensure we leave this country in the hands of capable, responsible people who understand the importance of both our own existing roles, and their own future roles and responsibilities to the generations yet to come.
