How ironic and hypocritical, Kevin Rudd has the “School Buildings,”“Pink Bats,” “Insulation” etc and the $900 that he gave to every one to get the country through the Global Financial Crisis which he did with all of the money going back into the economy and we still benefit today.

All hell broke loose from the Coalition parties yet now we have the Coalition who are in power are offering the small businesses $ 20,000 to upgrade, what do we see and get tradies driving around in new utes and more updated equipment and nothing is being said because it is a Coalition Program.

How hypocritical and hollow.

Coalition state governments are closing down TAFEs yet now they realise we need to get our young people off the dole and into a job – where will they be trained now that the TAFE’s are being closed down? Turnbull and his mob are just full of “p- – s and wind” as they lie and deceive to hold on to power and when it comes to “gutter tactics” they are at their best. Their turn will come.
