    Oh right, and you know this how?

    We're not in a recession but the fact that interest rates are at an all time low means that things aren't all roses and unicorns either...

    But they are anywhere near as bad as the coalition tries to make out they are, not even close. In fact, such a none issue, that it really shouldn't be used as an election promise to dig us out of this make believe "economic disaster" that the libs have made up.

    You all seem happy about the swearing website because 'it wasn't the ALP that did it'.
    But at the same time blame Abbott for a dinner menu he knew nothing about.

    I will say the menu was inappropriate.

    Do you not see the double standards here?
    I actually never commented on the menu thread, so you don't know my thoughts on it or if it had to do with Abbott.

    You also seem to be ignoring my thoughts about the website, where I have never condoned that either.

    I see your double standards loud and clear!

    I guarantee if our economy was or will be in trouble under Labor and he thought the Libs would do better, that my husband would not even consider voting for them.

    I didn't read the swearing blog either, and so I didn't comment, love how that equates to somehow supporting it!

    I believe the accusation was that it was Mal Brough's fault. Abbott was not blamed for it, but his lack of response was telling in the eyes of many.

    Wow look at that, that debt is actually tiny. Not even compared to other countries, it is literally just tiny. Considering the world has just gone through a financial crisis, we are doing really very well.
