Incomprehensible twaddle

Wow. Crikey has posted this leaflet doing the rounds in Albo's electorate.

Cute that it looks to be unauthorised election material - but that's a minor issue.

The biggest rant is about the pay packets of MPs and their superannuation arrangements. The anonymous writer might like to note that Tony Abbott is on the same employment conditions as Albo. He might also like to know that the pollies - on the initiative of the ALP but implemented by Howard - terminated the lifelong pensions and moved to exactly the same kind of super scheme as everyone else.

It goes to the "incompetent administration" point - ignoring that the rest of the World thought our GFC response was exemplary. As I've blogged before the auditor found BER was effectively administered for what it tried to achieve, and the roof bats had less safety issues during the program than before!

As a nation we simply do not have "huge debt" (and writing in capitals makes it no bigger).

It is a pity that incomprehensible twaddle can be circulated like this.
