The Liberals under Johnny Howard loudly declared "There will NEVER EVER be a GST in Australia"! As soon as they were in power we got the GST.
Why post lies? You "forget" that the "Still, before the 1998 election, Howard proposed a GST that would replace all sales taxes, as well as applying to all goods and services....... Howard described the election win as a "mandate for the GST""
So a GST was part of the Howard election campaign, and he won
The Labour Party, under Julia(r) Gillard, loudly declared "There will NEVER EVER be a Carbon Tax" in Australia! We just got the Carbon Tax!
labour said that they would not introduce a carbon tax, but the only way they could win was with the support of the greens, so they introduced a carbon tax!
5/Approx 98% of Australia is now under foreign mining lease ownership.

There are plenty of non lazy Aussie born who cannot get a job mate.
Iam self employed and do oK , but know mates who are over 30 and are on skid row.
They get Security Licenses , but see Indian teenagers getting the jobs...$20 an hour in Australia is Ok if you get 60 hours a week, but there are over a thousand Indians with the name singh who have security Licenses in Qld alone...somehow they are allowed to change their names to Singh , as their Indian name is too confusing and "TOO HARD TO DO BACKGROUND CHECKS ON" those with discernement will know what is going on.
There have been leaks to the press that secutity checks on foreign nationals wanting security licenses have been "pushed through " in order to save time.
As a frequent user of taxis I have been filled in by decent full time Gold coast cabbies of how Indian nationals have been hired on the so called skill shotrage visas to drive cabs ...some as young as 18 years old whilst Aussie born unemployed couldn't apply for a taxi license until they were 21.
Apparently after about three years of this the government has made the minimum age 20 years old for all regardless of age ...(after Indian cabbies of a young age smashed scores of taxis...all hushed up of course).
There are jobs pushing trolleys near my brothers place on the Gold coast which once was the domain of Aussies who are now the domain Of Indian teenagers or those early 20s who can barely speak English.
Some partially disabled aussies had those jobs...not now.
See its not about the color of skin its about nationality.
The snobby , elitist Uni types who bludged off their parents and got a degree by default, respond and say who would want such jobs anyway.
Whilst true blue Aussies know you work in any job rather than bludge if you can.
Sadly the if you are an ausie it is getting harder and harder to make reality, but only if you are an Australian citizen or national.
It appears very easy if you are not.

Ok I see your point, but what are we to do? It is obvious this is happening, but our government does not care! They do not respect the wishes of the people. It seems to me that they may be controlled by the NWO, this is the reason the carbon tax has passed even though there is so much opposition.
