Here's an idea to save money, Malcolm. Don't cut taxes to the ultra big companies (that do pay tax).
and make the others actually PAY TAX

It beggars belief that the only way the Libs can decrease their budget deficit is to reduce pensions and lower paid workers rates whilst decreasing business tax. Surely not even the Liberal voters have the gall to vote for this fascist party?

Liberal voters are mostly brought up to believe that the party can do no wrong and anything labour related is actively a devil with horns. If you have a conversation with one, you'll quickly discover that they are broadly ignorant of most facets of how our government, let along taxation or the economy actually function. THey get by on a steady diet of The Australian or whatever Murdoch-lite is available in their state and read the first few pages so they know what to be outraged about, without actually being able to explain any of it in any detail beyond "well, the paper said".

Also, they tend to read papers. And be old.

You are so totally left with a feeling of helplessness when dealing with job network providers, they tell you what they like, there is no negotiation. It is all a terribly disempowering experience - by design I am sure. For example, although centrelink likes to use this type of touchy-feely language in their public profiles, the reality on the ground is that you are treated like a good for nothing drug-addict with a 'dependency' on welfare. In contrast, welfare for the wealthy and big business is applauded with no obligation whatsoever to do anything but line their own pockets and look after their own interests.
