    “Trickle down” is not a policy anyone has. Progressive tax is.

    This panel seems to confirm the “airheads at the top” – but thankfully away from the levers – per the general consensus on the “If you want to raise the minimum wage you need to raise productivity first” fred.

  53. Turtle of WA

    In Vic the “rehabilitation” system doesn’t seem to be going to plan?

    Why stay at school if you’re ready for university?

  54. So 1st question is from a unionist who works on trains in the Hunter Valley and he classes himself as “working poor”.

  60. Greetings Carpe et al, it’s good to be back for another scintillating year of utter tripe from the Abe Beeb Cee.

    With that lot there’ll be either furious disagreement, or major harmony, given I don’t really think there’s much to separate “big business” and the unions.

    May I have a 12 in the lotto stakes please Carpe.
