    This graph is way too basic to draw any meaningful conclusions from. It doesnt even mention a specific figure. Debt needs to be considered as a portion of GDP growth, and in conjunction with population, inflation, employment figures and interests rates.

    To see if the economy really is going up the crapper you need to look at a wide range of economic indicators over a period of time.

    It's meant to be a basic infographic representing the sum of said economic indicators. Pretty sure you can find it all online.

    Yes, and the debt to GDP is low.

    I'll assume you meant 'down' the crapper

    Down/up, the crapper isn't a nice place to be either way

    The problem with basics is that they can be distorted and used for inaccurate propoganda purposes...

    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 have never heard one single person suggest that Abbott was responsible for that menu.

    I think at the bottom of that graph it says that it is as a proportion of GDP.

    They don't need anyone to write any bad things about them, their policies speak for themselves.
    Don't forget his Internet filtering plan.
