The Featherless Rooster
We watched the debate, Alabanese looked like a featherless rooster that wants to fly but doesn’t have the ability or know how. Crowing a lot does not grow feathers or ability.
His promise to increase wages in line with inflation good intent will only increase inflation upwards every time the increase is made, resulting in all products, food and clothing increasing also (as under Keating), where the increase became a negative liability on families because every product became too expensive to buy — and families suffered. Featherless rooster should not try to lay golden eggs.
Sorry mate, you lost our vote to common sense — we remember Keating’s 17% interest and ‘the recession we had to have’ — and friends who lost their homes and businesses.
