You do get confused, Trev. I supported the mining tax - and so did a lot of those 'righties'. I had doubts about how it was implemented. As it turned out, it was badly implemented and never raised even a fraction of what the then government claimed it would.

I'll help you out: Back at the time (2011), you started a thread you called 'Mining Tax'. Your first line was: "I see the mining tax went through yesterday without so much as a murmur from the right." In my reply, I said: "I agree with the mining tax, and there's plenty of MPs in the Coalition who agree with it too. Tony Abbott needs to be careful criticising it as just another big new tax, because the man most likely to take his job agrees with it too."

Wasn't it the Noalition that cut 1.7 billion from the home assist programs that kept the elderly in their homes rather than them having to go to nursing homes.

The "Righties" only supported the MRRT after it was watered down from it's original form. Before that they were screaming "murder".

Ford fans be proud. History of Australian motor racing shows Ford has been and will always be superior. They have to slow them down when they get serious about racing. The Phase 4 scared the **** out of people, they banned it. Sierra gets called on a technicality, Falcon EF "...had its wings clipped to make Holden part of the show", AU not allowed to show it's potential, Falcon BF gets clipped. Mustang Is so good Supercars made up a rule and gets a bag of cement in the roof, and it still wins.

my thoughts:

Firstly I don't agree with it and secondly why only retail and hospitality, why not police, fire fighters, etc?

Typical of this Liberal Government, target the bottom end, that is how they roll

There is no difference between Mal and Tony me thinks, look after the big end of town, the only visible difference between Mal and Tony is that Mal can string a sentence together and sound coherent

It's no surprise that Mal was never "a fully paid up member of the Labor Party". Just another Lib looking after his rich mates - and looking at the poll figures, there seems to be a lot of them.

This weekend penalty rates subject is extremely difficult.
I grew up in a 5 or 51/2 day a week situation where basically everything apart from the family run corner store was closed for the weekend.
In those days, penalty rates were certainly warranted if you had to work outside of the 'normal hours.'

We haven't been a 51/2 day week for many years. Times have changed.
If times have changed why haven't working conditions changed to reflect that?
If a business is a genuine 7 day a week operation then I believe that much of the 'extra money' should be watered down.
I believe that some compensation could be offered if you have to work Sat, Sun or nights but not to the current level.
If your operation is normally a 5 day one then it's fair to have the current levels of 'extra money' for working outside those hours.
The unions have kept gouging businesses without any regard to the consequences and will keep doing do if they are allowed.
A different tier of monetary recompense needs to be worked out to suit these very different times.

so, of course you mean nurses, doctors, ambo's, firies, police, etc etc, not just retail and hospitality

If they are then we all need to work 7 days a week for the same hourly rate and not penalise those at the bottom end of pay rates

I didn't say or allude to the same hourly rate Trev.
Read carefully what I wrote...
