Mad dogs and….

What is going on? What has happened to the State Coalition, spending money as if it is going out of fashion. The pattern for the Coalition has traditionally been: cut school funding – give tax cuts; cut university funding – give tax cuts; sell off or cut hospital funding – give tax cuts; don’t buy new public transport stock – give tax cuts; let public utilities run down – give tax cuts.
You only have to think back to the Howard Golden years (? ) when infrastructure, public amenities were allowed to run down, and there was a fire sale of public services (Telecom) but we were offered tax cuts yearly right up to the time of the failure of the Coalition, because by then we were able to read the signs.
