Things like power etc actually went up before the carbon tax. And what do you mean, Medicare is on the way out??
You might know people who are out of work. That doesn't change the national unemployment figures being low.
Cuts to research? I think that may be specific to your area? Or perhaps you're unaware- I just recently read this article:
In case you don't click the link here are two interesting points from it-
• Funding for health and medical research, through the NHMRC’s Medical Research Endowment Account, increased from $689.3 million in 2012-13 to $771.2 million in 2013-14, and forecast to increase to $859.9 million in 2014-15.
• An extra $1.3 million in research funding, comprising $700,000 for clinical trials reform and $600,000 to fund research for a rheumatic fever vaccine."
Also if you don't give a crap about the menu, why enter this thread? The title says its about the menu?!
Thanks Redlips, I was just about to comment on that insinuation, which I found offensive.
I've been following this thread from the start. I said it before and I'll say it again.
This thread began as a chance to discuss the sexist language that was used in the menu, regardless of whomever saw or didn't see it, and to reflect on how shameful it is that even our Prime Minister is subject to this sort of sexual harassment.
It has been a range of pro-Liberal posters who have consistently shifted this thread into a partisan political debate, which you can go back and observe started on Page 1 if you don't believe me. Then these posters are getting frustrated when people respond and engage in the debate!
For crying out loud, this disgusting menu was tacitly condoned by a number of males in leadership by their sheer lack of serious response! That is what this thread was originally about. I am so surprised that *in this context* there is any opinion other than it is a disgraceful turn of events, regardless of who you support politically.
It's a shame this thread is going down this track.....
Urgh. BubbleGuppy, you are the voter of all my worst nightmares. I can't even... Nope. Can't even.
