The federal Treasurer was on 3AW this morning with Neil Mitchell. Here are some of his gems:
“Spend up for Christmas.”
“Tomorrow will be better.” (“What do you mean tomorrow will be better?”)
“Things will be better next year, and even better the year after.”
Sorry, Joe, but invocations like this are no replacement for urgent tax reform along the lines recommended by the Henry Tax Review.
But you actually celebrate the fact that you’re against a mining tax and an all-in land tax which would permit us to replace 120 counter-productive taxes, don’t you?
So, you’re left mouthing this sort of nonsense to the public, eh?
