The Mercury

11 March 2014

Dear Editor,

Former Liberal Treasurer, Peter Costello's diatribe against Tasmania in yesterday's Daily Telegraph is the latest pointer to the Liberal's ripping billions of dollars off Tasmania in coming years through an adjustment of GST payments. That will cost Tasmanian jobs dearly.

The last time we had a Liberal majority state government unemployment was nearly double the current rate. Costello's attack shows just how much the Liberals are on track to take us back to their bad old days. Voters beware!
