Keith Duncan, Pimlico
Congratulations must go to our re-elected Richmond MP Justine Elliott, who has withstood a vicious and spurious scare campaign including by the Nationals candidate Matthew Fraser.
I was appalled to see claims the Labor Party was going to suddenly tax retirees and pensioners and with the Greens introduce a death and inheritance tax.
Australians are more than ever going to need a strong unified opposition to hold to account what is undoubtedly going to be another three years of chaos and cuts.
A shocking display of media bias from the Murdoch-owned News Corp; the Sunday before the election saw every edition carry editorials blatantly denigrating Bill Shorten and Labor’s election policies, desperately attempting to influence the election outcome.
It’s amazing how such spurious and misleading articles can be printed as ‘factual reporting’. All media outlets should be subject to the same stringent controls on factual and balanced reporting as our ABC.
