Remember, this is a government that just 4 years ago, had no debt. No debt. The repayments on the debt the Gillard government has run up come to one and a quarter billion dollars per month. Every month. For twenty years.
The six leading members of the government, from Gillard down, have a collective work experience of 181 years, but only 13 in the private sector.
If you take out of those 13 years the number that were spent as trade union lawyers, only two years were spent in the private sector.
So out of those 181 years:
No years spent running their own business
no years spent starting their own business
no years spent as a director of a family business or company
no years as a director of a public company
no years in a senior position in a private company
no years working in corporate finance
no years in corporate or business restructuring
no years working in or with a bank no years of experience in captal markets no years in a stockbroking firm
no years in negotiating debt facilities with banks
no years running a small business no years at the World Bank or the IMF or OECD
no years in Treasury or Finance.
But these people have plunged Australia into unprecedented debt. Ah, but they are Labor and Labor is good for the working family, right? Right?
