THIS is another example of a government out of touch. This is insane propaganda and outright insulting to the middle and lower class hard working Australians. Cost of living is going through the roof and not to many people I know including a broad spectrum of 400 persons at my place of employment are exactly flushed with cash. Its pure feel good smoke and mirrors information delivered by a pathetic government willing to say anything only to seem to look good making out we are all living in utopia.

Thats nothing compared to housing prices in Sydney, rarely can you find a home inside a 30km less than $750k and most rentals inside a 25km started around $550 for a house and $450 for a 2 bdm apartment.

ABS stats. A very small percentage earn more than is reasonable, basically a greedy income and the majority get dog biscuits, therefor the average income in Australia is millions, and the majority of the public are poor, have little faith in the Australian Government and or its various devious empires, and do not believe any of its propaganda.
After all the muppet Julia Gillard will tell you immigration is a wonderful success, the dole bludgers get to much so we need to make it harder, and that there are jobs for everyone and mining is great with your corn flakes.
She is a failure. As the minister of education she waisted millions, due to incompetence and heck the stupid Australian public made her the PM, the budgie smuggler Abbot isn't much better. Aussie was once a great nation now its just a dumping ground for Chinese rubbish and anyone who either buys their way in via the education system or flees some place else due to screwing up their own country and wants a free ride.
The education system is now a profit driven empire, they sell certificates for just about anything to make a buck and the slimy HR companies have jumped on the band wagon playing games with an ever shrinking job market.
Unfortunately we are a bit of a bastard system taking the worst from England and the US, with devious, dishonest, greedy muppets, like Julia, Wong and Garrett running the show. I would not believe a thing that the Australian politicians had to say, net alone any government department, as they are in my words either muppet's or scum.
Once Australia has finished mining all it has, it will be a fourth world country if there is such a thing. Our manufacturing is screwed our farming is screwed our trades are screwed our real estate is screwed. What a sad place. We were once a great people. Australia is no longer a democracy its public are unarmed and at the mercy of ever increasing corruption.edit on 14-4-2011 by marsend because: typos
