TWEEDLEDUM AND TWEEDLEDUMMER
They’re just as bad as each other: one of the two major political parties blaming the other for the mess they inherited when they came into power, into government.
But this time, Joe Hockey, it really is different.
Whilst Labor didn’t cover itself in glory from 2007 to 2013, it most certainly did inherit a damning legacy from John Howard and Peter Costello. The Howard government failed to take any action at all to curb the residential real estate bubble that’s delivering us such financial grief, with people now unwilling to spend. (Even China has been proactive in trying to deflate its real estate bubble!)
Here’s proof of the Howard/Costello legacy.
So, please, Joe Hockey, no more of your “inherited from Labor” bullshit!
