Speaking at the Australia-Israel Chamber of commerce Abbott again claimed that he would create a million jobs in two years and two million in ten years. I just don’t get it. Does this mean we have to work more than one job to fill the vacancies Abbott will create? Or do we have an unemployment rate of -2%? The only suggestion I have is that perhaps we need more boats.
He is going to create a one stop shop for environmental approvals. This is dangerous. We need checks and balances, even if it is more expensive. We cannot afford environmental mistakes on top of the looming environmental disaster called global warming.
He is also going to create a un-fundable parental leave scheme whilst at the same time reducing company tax. A summation is that he is going to increases benefits for all and reduce company taxes and personal tax at the same time.
The NBN will be cheaper. This is a slight of hand. The cost to the government may be a little cheaper but with every consumer paying $5000.00 for the final connection it is much dearer for Australia.
And so it goes on.
The real problem is that there are those that will believe Abbott really is the tooth fairy.
