retail sales ?

So retail sales are down. consumer confidence is going lower and lower. Are you surprised?
The PM and the Treasurer talk down the country at every opportunity. They tell us constantly that we are in a financial crisis, that we will be in trouble until God knows when so what do you think the “nervous nellies” do? They stop shopping. They hold off buying the fridge or that washing machine.
It may have been a good idea when in opposition to talk down your own country and economy but when in government – and without a single real policy except giving to the rich – of course the ordinary man-in-the-street will hold off spending because the government they have just put in told them we were in crisis.. Basic economics Joe and Tony.
