Apologies, I'd gained the impression you and Coburg were cynically implying genocide.

I raised overpopulation in a global context. Wasn't thinking of immigration.

No doubt! There's only so much that can be conveyed in print. We all want what's best for the footy club, the country and the rest of the world. Disagreements about how to get there are par for the course.

That will come in handy.

The least they could though, as we've had record LOW wages growth in the last six years.

I've got two LG 55" Smart tv's purchased a couple of years apart. It helps keep the peace with the family.
The 2nd one was purchased about 2 years ago, it was more expensive that the one purchased about 2 years before that.
I could be wrong, i don't really follow the prices, but i reckon the costs of tv's has gone up.

Alot of people will be happy with this, even those who thought DiNatali is right.
He continues to flog himself into irrelevance.

I am trying to figure out why, when we have the Libs in government our economy is going so bad.
They dont look after the poor, the environment, the sick or those with a disability unless they have to.

So why are they f'ckin up the one thing they were supposed to be strong on? (along with protecting religious freedoms (of christians))

What indicators are you referring to? Unemployment and inflation seem to be a reasonable levels, and we have had record trading surpluses in recent months.

GDP growth is a concern, but aside from establishing a competitive tax/IR regime and then getting out of the way, I'm not sure what role a government has to play

The main concern for me in the economy is the lack of wages growth. Wages growth has slowed significantly in the last few years whilst inequality of income has increased. What that means is that wages growth is low and what growth there is is skewed to higher incomes.

The myth of the Libs as good economic managers is just that. They are economic illiterates and vandals.

Unemployment numbers are misleading. There is massive underemployment thanks to the casualisation of the workforce, while many people have simply given up and are therefore not counted.

Low inflation is a function of a stagnant economy. Our economy would be going backwards (recession) were it not for one thing: immigration.
