Good stuff

Brisbane Times

The Liberals in Queensland are sticking it to the civil servants who don’t like it up them:

Treasurer Andrew Fraser has labelled the LNP’s costings as “a direct attack’’ on the public sector workers of Queensland.

He argued that with population growth, the 3% cap on annual increases in employee costs meant wage rises would have to be less than inflation.

Mr Fraser also condemned planned cuts to state-based carbon schemes, saying it was a taste of the approach to the environment taken by an LNP government with “unfettered power’’. Daniel Hurst’s report on the costings is here.

    Labor is gone for all money and by tomorrow Aussie’s four biggest states will all be in LNP hands. Good luck Julia, life is about to get just a little bit harder.

    So, they are saying, inflation is more than 3% in Quensland? But I thought Labour over here wasa saying that it was SOO much better than here. Have the Aussires finally found out what we learned 6 years ago, Labour are useless idiots and liars.
