frown Vic Govt vs The Feds

Those in Mexico will have noticed that the Bracks government had been running a series of taxpayer funded TV advertisements bemoaning the lack of equality in Federal funding under the slogan "it's just not fair".

Now it appears that the Federal government have retailiated with a series of their own ads highlighting some of the Bracks governments unkept promises under the slogan "that would be fair".

So we get the pleasure of paying to watch our State and Federal governments have a schoolyard fight that no one cares about anyway.

At least they are only airing the ads in prime (and maximum cost) time.

Cheers
Russ

Oh well, at least they can make the money back, picking motorist's pockets

Just get rid of them (The Bracks boys). Stop stealing our money and wasting it on silly feuds.

I noticed the federal government advertisement this evening, pathetic. What an incredible waste of money.

Re: Vic Govt vs The Feds

I'm a little pissed the Feds let themselves be dragged to the Bracks & Carr level.

Carr wont match the requred % of health spending met by the other states and claims he's missing $260Mil which is a fraction of the cuts his gov has made. Then he pisses $90Mil on an add campaign. Go figure.

NSW tourims is almost entirely funded by the feds because Carr has used those funds too.

The Federal govt does not need an add campaign to show Bracks & Carr are corrupt and incompetant. State labour is doing that all on its own.

Re: Vic Govt vs The Feds

Well the feds had to make it clear, as the intelligence level here in Vic is at a all time low (by this I mean Bracks and cronies still lead in polls), they'll listen and believe any bullshit Bracks feeds them
