    It’s all there in black and white: what you get if you vote for the LNP is “HOpe reWARD Opportunity” – forget the opportunity! Trouble is, there won’t be any money around to squander as a certain PM did back in those “good old days”!! Just the policies that favoured the wealthy and big business, did nothing about building infrastructure and tax breaks for the top end of town.
    Good luck to the bogans stupid enough to vote for that motley crew!!!

    It’s a pity that river of gold, Telstra, was turned into a dry creek, otherwise it could’ve helped underwrite some government policies.

    Speaking of gold, Costello sold off 68% of our reserves back in 1997 when gold was trading around $325/oz. A shame that’s no longer in the kitty currently at $1600/oz.
