What the hell is going on in this campaign? Wake up journos! After the boos and hisses from Howard that government spending will shaft interest rates, he has plucked another $1bn out of the magic rabbit's clacker for the oldies. So this is now nearly $3bn worth of uncosted shit from the small spending Liberals. What does this package mean, well people over 55 can get a rebate of up to $500 per year
(good to see the picture of Howard in front of shite Gold Coast backdrop. Are the ABC doing their best to make all politicians look like twats?). Meanwhile Latham has to be Captain Tightarse or the hounds of Kirribilli Lodge (the nation's captial since 1996) will pounce. Psephite has got a regular run (here
) on this issue of spending and no doubt there'll be more to follow.
