CBD: It’s all about fairness (for public servants)

Our perspicacious political insider exclusively writes:

That wonderfully emotive and substance devoid slogan of fairness will play a big role in Election 19.

And yes what could be fairer than taking $200 billion out of Australian pockets to help fund an increased public service with increased wages right here in Canberra.

To deny this fairness exposes the hard right of the Liberal Party. What greater virtue, what greater principle, what greater economic stimulus for our Nation’s capital where my fellow CBDers live.

Sure, Queensland has had droughts and floods and there have been fires in Tasmania and elsewhere. But how can the Liberals so insensitively overlook the man made disaster of a restrained public service struggling on wage increases of 1.5 to 2 per cent per annum. Talk about out of touch!

And the failure of the hard right is writ large in their economic management as well. They promised one million jobs and epically failed by delivering over 1.25 million jobs.

Or take the surplus – achieved earlier than promised. They just can’t get their numbers right.

Indeed why have a surplus when you could keep running deficits while thrusting more money in CBDers pockets.

As for the Coalition’s future denying renewable energy policy! If only SM could get those red necked Queenslanders to vote for daylight savings – just imagine the extra solar power that could be generated, help dry up the floods quicker and well it’s just bad luck for their curtains. Good for the environment, good for agriculture and good for jobs with all those extra curtains being needed. They could be made out of leftover Pink Batts by communes operating out of school halls. A fully integrated Labor/Green policy building on past achievements which could sink the Liberals in the newly created ACT seat of Bean.

And, no, the seat wasn’t named after Mr Bean.

CBD will be contributing regularly throughout the campaign.
