    Election 2013: 14th Sept - the official thread

    It's official: ABS index shows house prices rising

    Too true that. ABS Index VS unemployemnt rate, sectors in a death sprial (retail, building), other sectors cost-cutting (oil & gas), even stevens inflation. Ummm, no thanks, I'll also pass on the fix rate suggestion. The AUS economy is not in a good place...in fact it's crap...

    Abbott summarises Labor's failures

    Asset? She lied about going full-term. She lied about asset sales and fuel taxes. She mismanaged our water. Her stance against a referendum on daylight saving is outdated. It was during her watch that the QLD Health payroll disaster occurred and is still yet to be resolved...
