Apparently the guys in the expensive suits reckon the election campaign’s been a bit light on for tax reform so far, the gist being that they’d quite like to pay less of it.
Fair enough, there’s nothing like a bit of tax reform to capture the public’s imagination, but if tax reform thinks it’s been a bit dudded for detailed policy attention in the past few weeks then it can bloody well take a number and join the queue like pretty much everything else. It’s also possible that Kevin’s head stuffed and mounted on the wall of the Mining Billionaires’ Club has put Julia and Tony off a little bit.
There was also a bit of suspiciously WorkChoicey talk (between puffs of cigar smoke) that a touch more flexibility in Industrial Relations wouldn’t go astray. Bizarrely that too hasn’t had a big run so far, though John Howard’s head on a spike outside ACTU headquarters may provide a clue. Oh well, there are still a few days to go….
