The shadow minister for small business accused me of lying over his support for a government owned bank. The Australian newspaper of 22 May 2010 begins:
Two decades after the collapse of state banks in Victoria and South Australia, the Coalition is considering setting up a government-backed bank to lend money to small and medium businesses.
He went on to say in the article:
“There’s a range of possibilities, including governments offering wholesale lending guarantees like the government did for the big banks after the global financial crisis.
I rest my case.
