    Cant believe people have let this slip by

    RBA has lowered rates because economy, as usual, is headed down the toilet under ALP

    At least they're consistent in this regard

    Then why do the Tories promise interest rates will always be lower under the Coalition?


    Oh.......

    Since when are low interest rates as apocalyptically bad as social seems to think?

    Well the banks don't pass it on half the time. We'd be at a 0% cash rate and you'd still be borrowing at 5%

    I'm on site and for the second time in two weeks an innocent discussion about the economy has ended with a lecture on the 'self appointed leftist elite' by a tradie.

    We really are still living in John Howard's Australia.

    Good to see Tone snuggled behind his wife today while she explained to the neighbours why he'd broken their window. At least, that's what I assumed was happening. It looked far too contrived to bother listening to.

    Low rates arent bad per se but it's the RBA's reasons for dropping the rates which are the worry - basically, the economy is at high risk of tanking

    It's not a surprise because the ALP's only strategy is to mortgage your future against stuff we dig up and sell to a couple of countries

    If those countries catch a cold, Australia is screwed because virtually every other industry is struggling massively

    In the meantime, the ALP continues pointing to the revenue generated by this one industry and telling the world that things are great for everyone in Oz - it's a total heap of ****
