LETTER: Parliament still haunted by Labor's failed ministers

MEMORY loss is at a peak among the ex-Rudd/Gillard seat warmers who unfortunately still haunt the nooks and crannies of Parliament House.

We still have to suffer the harangues and tirades directed at government ministers by Labor's ex-treasurers, finance ministers, immigration ministers, etc., etc., via the ABC and other media.

All these has-beens failed utterly and miserably in each and every portfolio they were entrusted with.

They saddled us with 50,000 illegals with an accompanying debt of billions, stuck us with obscene borrowings of billions more to fund failed thought bubbles and brain snaps, leaving behind a trail of disaster and were then booted out of office by the people.

One such ex-minister has been having her usual rant about who you can trust and where Labor's child care funding promises have been negated by the Coalition. Towards the end of Gillard's term, $300 million allocated to child care was converted to a slush fund, some of which was then only paid out to child care workers who joined the union.

Shades of the recent Road Transport Remuneration Tribunal; same people, same ideology.
