  • Dwight Walker: That is a really bad place to zone for residential right next to flood plain of Burpengary Creek. Moreton Bay Regional Council should have factored in a flood levee before approving housing... (11 February 2016)

  • Tibor Majlath: Correction: Didn't really notice the greatest fall in price. If as the LNP says prices for electricity fell by up to 12.4%, most of my savings must have been eaten up by continued price rises... (10 February 2016)

  • Tibor Majlath: Perhaps the senator meant to say the top marginal tax rate is/was 45c which does not include 2% Medicare levy and the LNP's Temporary Budget Repair Levy payable at a rate of 2% for taxable... (7 February 2016)

  • Tibor Majlath: The member claims that unions are lying, presumably about Gonski. She says Labor is misleading people over education funding. She wants them to tell the 'truth'. Hear! Hear! Is Labor correct... (6 February 2016)

  • Tibor Majlath: Is that due to "bracket creep"? For a start, isn't wages growth at record lows? So, how are wage earners being taxed higher and higher? Some businesses recently received tax cuts. Who or what... (5 February 2016)

  • Tibor Majlath: The hypocrisy of both sides is self-evident. Labor had the power to change the LNP's "never ever" GST to make it fairer if it wanted to by lowering or even eliminating the GST on essential... (5 February 2016)

  • Tibor Majlath: The LNP under Howard doled out massive tax cuts payed for by the resources boom and China's economic rise. The LNP's shortsighted legacy is that we now have a big revenue shortfall yet their tax... (5 February 2016)

  • Robert Ashman: As usual Darren Chester, nothing of any substance from you, when are you going to contribute something constructive for a change? Gippsland is being very poorly represented. (4 February 2016)

  • Andrew JACKSON: Senator Brandis' comments about Shorten are probably true but under Newman our electricity prices failed to drop. We need to re-build government owned electricity plants and run these plants... (5 January 2016)

  • Tibor Majlath: The senator mentions the Coalition's abatement cost of $13.12/tonne in the same breath with Labor's alleged carbon price of $209/tonne. The first is a cost to government in 2015. The second is... (1 January 2016)

  • Tibor Majlath: It is difficult enough to understand the various percentages thrown about by politicians. It seems that off-peak did increase by 2-2.5 cents/KWH due to the carbon tax. This increase appears to... (23 December 2015)
