I DISAGREE with M. Campbell- Smith in lambasting Bill Shorten for his negativism as Opposition Leader.
He was handed the template from Tony Abbott, inarguably the most negative opposition leader we’ve had.
His tactics were taken directly from the American Republican songbook.
How short our memories are. I would like to see more bipartisanship but look what that has led to regarding refugees.
I want Mr Shorten to be hugely oppositional to the budget proposals because they are so patently unfair and unnecessary.
I do not know of any of our poorest Australians who will not suffer considerably if the proposals come into being.
The budget emergency lie whereby you repeat something so much it morphs into the truth prevents a rational consideration of measures which are fair to all to be taken to continue our triple A economy.
A good place to start might be for the same missionary zeal to be applied to tax evaders as it is to dole bludgers.
