YOUR SAY – THE ELECTION

CONTESTLEN Langan asks us to accept that Australian politics consists of two rival caterers in a contest for the opportunity to govern Australia.This attitude has resulted in a system that promotes blind party loyalty with disregard for sound democratic government.

Blind adherence to parties allows influential groups or individuals with vested interests to use the democratic process as a means to attain power and influence by means both honest and dishonest rather than by sound democratic process.

Relegating minority parties and independents to the status of “pension prospectors and opportunists” is an insult not upheld by the long, proud record of minor parties who represent a wide range of community-based interests rather than restricting themselves to those represented by the government or the opposition.

An independent like Doris Blackburn, 1946, who pioneered the women’s rights and Aboriginal land rights, does not deserve the insult of “opportunist”.More recently, Brian Harradine, a representative who was always accessible to his community, achieved $150 million for a range of projects in Tasmania.

Similarly, at this time, we have strong independents who work hard to represent their communities, often at odds with any major party agenda.

I suggest thanking the small parties and independents.The majority work hard, without the support of the financial power of vested interests and by supporting the democratic process, with their focus on policy, not party.

Geraldine Robertson, Trevallyn.ALLIANCESVOTERS should recall that the ALP/Green alliance left this country with a large debt close to $280 billion. This was after they promised to deliver surpluses for six years, when it fact they were the largest deficits in Australian history.Now we learn from Mr Shorten that a Labor Government would run large deficits for the next four years but with a promise to return to surplus within 10 years. Can we trust them again?

Cor Udan, Launceston.ECONOMIC MANAGEMENTTHE Liberal Party’s track record on economic management is hardly one to be proud of. In their three years of government the Liberal Party have tripled the deficit, stripped funding from schools and universities and hospitals and reduced the wages and living conditions of ordinary Australians.

Their record is not one of economic management for all Australians.Their only ‘new’ idea to build Australia is to allow businesses to pay less tax.There is absolutely no certainty that the money that businesses make from paying less tax will trickle down to improve the lives of ordinary Australians.

The only certainty is that the rich will become richer.Economic management, really?

Megan Short, Mowbray.MEMBER SUPPORTWITH the federal election closing in, remember Brett Whiteley supported Tony Abbott’s hard line measures against pensioners. Time to put the record straight.
