Letter to the Editor - Friday, May 16: Premiers lying
THESE conservative State Governments have known for two years that if the Federal conservatives got into power they were going to change the GST. (May 4, 2012 - Austar's Midday Agenda - Mike Baird Shadow NSW treasurer plus other conservative treasurers on this program at which this matter was publicly discussed).
What the State premiers are saying is a blatant lie as they have known that this is what an Abbott Government would do if elected to power.
The real reason for their so-called opposition is for the purpose of deceiving the public in their quest for re-election - Queensland, NSW and Victoria are up for re-election within the next 12 months.
Once re-elected they will fall into line with the Abbott Government's suggestion to increase the GST.
