The affected outrage from Senator Singh might have some credibility but for the fact that she was kicked out by the people of Denison at the last state election because of the job-destroying policies of the Labor Party in that state. Now she is here voting for policies to get rid of Public Service jobs, not by 50s but by the thousands—14½ thousand—and then she claims a concern for job opportunities in Tasmania. Tasmania, as a result of Labor legacy issues—both Canberra and Hobart—has the highest unemployment rate in the country. It is in recession because of Labor-Greens policies from Canberra and Hobart. If you want to do something for job opportunities in Tasmania, vote to remove the carbon tax, vote to remove the mining tax, to ensure that the cost of living can be enhanced. (Time expired)
