The Member for Richmond, Justine Elliot appears to be living in a parallel universe.
She needs to come to grips with the acceptance that the hundreds of billions of dollars absolutely wasted by her and her fellow former government members over a six year period from 2007 to 2013 have created the budget problems that necessitated expenditure cutbacks.
If she is so concerned now, why wasn’t she concerned then?
Justine, have you ever considered the number of hospitals that could have been built, the improvements in education and assistance to the disabled that could have been undertaken with only part of this wasted $400 plus billion.
Six years on and there is virtually nothing to show for this waste.
Justine, this budget is medicine that you have forced all of us to swallow and you are the one responsible.
