Thought I would set up a thread for discussion on Australian politics for us Aussies. Just thought I would hear other people's views on the performance of the current government? In my view, I think its a bad government that hopefully is punished by the voters at the next election. Whatever Julia Gillard and Labor touch, they ruin at the moment. Broken promises and lies seem to be the theme of this government as well as introducing a carbon tax that will make no difference to the climate and only lead to job losses and increase cost of living. Interested to hear thoughts from others.
