We Are No Longer the Lucky Country

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor

Over the past 30 years, from 1992 to 2022, the Liberals have claimed Labor had higher unemployment, higher interest rates, and higher electricity prices than under a Liberal Government.

As we have just heard, the wholesale price of electricity has risen by 141% since this time last year. Morrison can't blame this on Labor because it happened on his watch. On the interest rate rise, the Reserve Bank sets it, not Morrison or Labor. Don't lay the blame on Labor. 

Out of the past 30 years the Liberals governed for 20 of them, Labor only for 10. What did they do in those 20 years that benefitted our country? SWEET NOTHING! 

The source for these claims came from the Federal Budget, the Reserve Bank and the Australian Bureau of Statistics, say no more. Propaganda powers on as usual.

The cost of living has spiralled out of control. Families can't afford to buy food. A wealthy country in third world standards. Poverty in the 21st century is unacceptable and it's all under Morrison’s watch.

They say history always repeats itself. Just like Nero did, he played the fiddle while he watched Rome burn. Morrison sat sipping drinks on holiday in Hawaii while he watched Australia burn. Do you call that being a good leader? He's all self.

Audrey Hutchison, Berry
