…from the quill of Antisthenes
As if any further proof of Brown-Gillard’s clique’s utter contempt for citizens of this country was needed, their government has limited the time for public to make submissions on the proposed new tax to just one week. Alternatively, they may have very high opinion of the intelligence of the electorate for to read about 1,100 pages of tax legalese and to draft a sensible submission thereon would be a task worthy of a last century Oxford/Cambridge educated public servant. In the panic to save their jobs, or the world, whichever comes first, they even dispensed with the usual public hearings about the proposed legislation. Of course, the taxpayers of no consequence could try to attend.
Undoubtedly, the Get Up, Get Down, But Always Left clowns would hurry to save the world and organise “grass roots” submissions. It is likely they got orders to organise them well in advance. Your submission can be short and ought to be sweet. If I were to write that I disposed of all my AGW materials upon hearing Julia Gillard’s solemn promise NOT to introduce the silly tax, I would not be believed. You may get away with that.
The submissions are to be sent to Joint Select Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday the 22nd September, 2011. Apparently on the official government web site – http://www.aph.gov.au/house/committee/ one can find instructions, but when I tried, the site did not work. Do not jump to unwarranted conclusions – would any government which Julia Gillard leads do anything dishonest?
