So, dear overseas readers, meet the incoming "conservative, centre-right, libertarian" Australian prime minister, Tony Abbott:
The best possible example of meritocracy in action!
16-08-2013. It didn't take long for an update! Australia will give the flick to 32 thousand asylum seekers already here.
As we are in a budget deficit crisis (OMG, OMG), to solve it, Abbott will cut corporate taxes, for the common good. Yes, dear reader, believe it or not, Abbott re-discovered that wonder of economics: the "trickle down".
Although Abbott said the Goods and Services Tax will remain unchanged, he also announced a tax reform commission whose job is to recommend what taxes should be changed. Among the taxes to be evaluated is the GST.
And however dead, cremated and buried, a WorkChoices by any other name would smell like shit. And something definitely smells bad.
