Tax is going to be a defining issue this election.
The debate has already begun – we have two reports just this week.(and..)
Another idea is to have a tax-free threshold up to $13,000 so everyone gets a slice of the action.
It makes a lot of sense.
All of these projections by the way are based on the premise that $3bn is going to be spent on tax cuts.
And the Government books are now robust enough to write that sort of cheque (sic.).
(ed:..see what i mean..?..he is calling for first 13 grand to be tax-free..that is a bloody brilliant idea..as it is the tax cut that will most help the poorest..
and if english does do this – he will leave labour foundering in his wake..)
