What a joke. The political state of Australia in general, and Western Australia in particular, is embarrassing. WA has just lost it’s AAA credit rating, and the Premier’s response is to force the Federal Government to increase the GST rate?! No, taxing the people more is not the answer to your run-away spending spree. Spending less than you earn is the answer. Mean while Abbott, the least female-friendly Prime Minister I have ever seen, has appointed himself Minster for Women’s Affairs.
I seriously think it is time to move to a new country, one where common sense isn’t seen as something rare and mystical.
