How we got into debt


Well,   after Australians Voted out the Liberal Party with Mr Howard and his Penny Pinching, saving  funds for your Childrens Future, Australia Voted and the Labour party took the Greens preferences and gained Power. Thence they set about travelling the world, splashing aid out to forign countries, attending Copenhagen conferences re, Global warming whilst it  snowed.

 Government and Public servant Numbers swelled thus the need for more  monies vide taxes to pay for these extra positions created.  Then we saw Mr Combet  take 45 of his  staffers on a  publicly funded hoilliday.

Now we contend with Farm lands Being Fracked for Gas Exploration,

Land  sold to  overseas Interests, You a carbon based life form are told Your Pollution and a tax must be paid on CO2.

1stly Julia  said there will be no carbon tax and once In office she flip floped and changed her mind, a bit like Obama /Soetero was given a peace prize,  he made certian statements,…  and then More wars Hussain and Giddaffie now Syria and the ensuing bloody mess.

The Price Rises re your Utility Bills are being funnelled into the World Conservation Bank fund of which Certian people have Shares in and profit  from.

      The Conspiracy of an Empire: A Letter to Those that Serve the System:
      August 27, 2012 in Activism

      by Shawn Helton

      This is a letter to those who serve the system. You need to accept that our country has been taken
      over by a financial and scientific dictatorship. Those in charge of our wealth and resources have
      pledged to a dark empire. We need reject the predatory and illegitimate war making used to crush liberty.
      As the world is in decline, you will have to make a choice between freedom and tyranny. Future generations
      depend on it. Dissent is still the highest form of patriotism. Will you speak up for your country

      By working for this system you are agreeing to the reformation of the United States Constitution and are
      condoning the actions of a corrupt, government, devoid of morals that has been taken over at the highest levels by global criminals.

      Under this current administration we’ve descended into total authoritarianism having extending the Patriot Act,
      passing the NDAA, which in it’s pure description is the indefinite detention of American citizens, thus, stripping us
      of our constitutional rights without evidence of any crime. Just recently, an army manual was leaked describing
      plans for internment resettlement operations or re-education camps here in the U.S., during the event of
      “military or civil conflict”, or if we had a “natural or man-made disaster”. As free people we should be extremely
      concerned and we have been warned.

        A BILLION dollar stuff-up has given the state government’s financial credentials a bloody nose but also dragged its budget back into the black.

        Treasurer Mike Baird’s first budget was revealed to have been littered with accounting and data entry errors that meant his deficit of $337 million should in fact be a surplus of $680 million.

        In a scathing assessment of how the government misplaced $1 billion, Auditor-General Peter Achterstraat said the budget result had “bounced around a bit like a pinball machine”.

        “NSW is a billion-dollar business, it is not a school tuckshop,” he said.

        “A $1 million error is unfortunate, a $10 million error is undesirable but a $100 million error is totally unacceptable.

        “If parliament and Treasury is to make important reform decisions they need timely, accurate financial advice. We need better financial processes, better financial systems and, in many cases, better qualified staff to prepare accounts.

        Heads must roll for $1 billion bungle»

        THANKS to a combination of incompetence and carelessness, the state government managed to make $1 billion disappear. But how?
        ..

        “Many issues related to spreadsheet errors, many related to valuation errors and some were data entry errors and that’s the frustrating thing, these errors should be put through well and truly before financial accounts come to me.”

        Mr Achterstraat compared the financial blunder to a cricket match where “you’ve got five overs to go and you think you’ve only got to get X number of runs and all of a sudden you’re told you’ve got to get five times that”.

        All up there were 37 errors worth more than $20 million and two errors worth more than $1 billion, which involved officials undervaluing the value of the state archives and the Snowy Hydro scheme’s worth to government.

        The Auditor-General’s office confirmed a similar error occurred in 2009-10 when Labor was $800 million out with its surplus.

        But the Coalition had still made more errors than Labor in its last two budgets.

        Opposition Leader John Robertson said the auditor’s findings showed that the $4.8 billion in cuts from education and health were “unjustified”.

        “Mike Baird, while he continues to argue this line (of an underlying deficit) shows how incompetent he is,” he said.

    Auditor-General Peter Achterstraat said the significant decrease in replacement cost in the department’s revaluation of BER buildings – from $1.89 billion originally to $1.23 billion now – may be due to the actual costs paid for them being too high.

    In one frenzied 10-month period, Labor spent almost $200,000 dollars on 33 party members visiting international colleagues.

    The Liberals also enjoy their overseas jaunts; one delegation including former prime minister John Howard, federal director Brian Loughnane and former president Shane Stone, spent $70,000 attending a Democratic Union meeting in London.

    Sending Mr Stone on nine trips cost taxpayers 94,000, while taxpayers forked out $108,000 on six trips for Mr Loughnane.
    It included sending Mr Stone and his wife Peta Credlin, Tony Abbott’s chief of staff, on a two-week New Year’s trip to America for bilateral talks with the Democrats.

    Around $10 million has been spent by the parties ‘promoting democracy’ since 2006, and they will be given another $4 million dollars before current funding runs out next year.

    Serco profits rise as detention contracts hit $1.86bn

    By Bianca Hall
    April 20, 2013, 3 a.m.

    Private security company Serco’s contracts with the government have blown out by $1.5 billion, as Australia’s border protection system strains under the weight of increased flows of asylum seekers.

    Serco Australia, a division of a British multinational, provides immigration detention services for the government, and has two contracts with it that have been active since 2009. But those contracts have ballooned from $323 million four years ago to a record $1.86 billion this year.

    Serco has welcomed the increase in asylum seekers in its annual report. But it says its future profits in Australia will depend on the ”country conditions” in the Middle East and Asia.

    One Serco contract, for running Australia’s detention centres, was originally valued at $279 million in 2009. Three amendments later, it is now worth $1.67 billion. The other – for residential housing and immigration transit services – has grown from $44 million in 2009 to $195.4 million this year.

    It was updated for the fourth time last month, rising from $94 million to $195.4 million.

    Both contracts are subject to confidentiality agreements

      ANZ Bank staff’s Mickey Mouse perks
      EXCLUSIVE by Phil Jacob

      ANZ bank spent more than $750,000 sending 75 staff members and their partners on a trip to Disneyland last week, at a time when the bank faces more pressure to cut interest rates out of cycle with the RBA.

      On the all-expenses paid trip, costing $11,000 a couple, ANZ staff from 14 countries – including 37 from Australia – were flown economy class with Qantas to Los Angeles before spending four nights there including a day trip to Disneyland.

      The scheme is part of ANZ’s CEO Recognition program, which rewards staff for up-selling credit cards and insurance products and meeting other sales targets.

      The news comes just days after ANZ delivered a bumper $1.53 billion three-month profit.

      The result, a 6 per cent increase on a year ago, was helped by wider profit margins from lending to Australian consumers and a push to sign up more home loan and deposit customers.

      The bank’s latest splurge is less than a year after The Daily Telegraph revealed ANZ had taken 200 staff on a five-day butler-serviced cruise on the “world’s best” luxury liner.

      Related Coverage

      The Silver Shadow at sea.

      The bank rocks the boat

      .. .

      Just days after the bank announced it would slash 1000 jobs, the workers, rewarded as part of the same program, last year sailed on the Silver Shadow to Malaysia’s Langkawi Islands.

      But an ANZ spokesman yesterday said the bank recognised the “more difficult times we are working in” – with the budget for this year’s program cut by more than 30 per cent with the number of participants down from 110 to 75.

      “The program covers all the 32 countries ANZ operates in around the world and the reward of an overseas trip recognises a small group of high performing junior staff at the coal face of our organisation – on the phone and in branches, or in the back office,” the spokesman said. Consumer advocates last night expressed outrage at the details of the trip, pointing to the bank’s advertising slogan: “We live in your world”.

      “There is no doubt in the world the people who attended this trip worked very, very hard,” consumer advocate Christopher Zinn said.

      “But this kind of behaviour can only cause customers to look elsewhere given the bank’s reluctance to cut interest rates. ANZ say they live in our world, but I think most customers of ANZ would like to be similarly rewarded through lesser home loan repayments.”

      In a monthly banking confidence survey released yesterday, the results showed ANZ was still making up ground with business customers after a difficult 2012.

      The DBM Consultants’ Business Financial Services Monitor showed satisfaction with ANZ dropped sharply after the bank shifted the timing of its monthly interest rate decision away from the official RBA board meeting.

They run around the country either as Politicians or as Union officials and scream out the injustice of the low income earners, the Pensioners and looking after Australian workers. In fact they sound impressive maybe I haven’t given them the credit they deserve.

    However, Labor ensured Politicians got a pay-rise of between 31% and 48%. At the same time they gave Public servants a 3% pay-rise and the rest of Australia received a generous 4.1%. However the politicians ensured they received their pay rise before the 3% Public Servants pay rise which politicians also were able to claim.

    This supposedly was to ensure they would not fall behind in the pay structures. While 3 % sounds like a trifle to someone on $80,000 which would give this person $2400 a year extra or $6.81 a day. This amount gave our PM who is on her salary of $495,000 an extra $15,000 a year or incredibly $42.61 a day. This means her pay rise of 3% meant her salary increased by the amount of a unemployment payment in Australia who she and her Cabinet believes is enough to live on.

    This is the face of this Socialist Government, it happily grabs the money off all of us, and redistributes that wealth among themselves, they have no right to call themselves a grassroots community organisation, Party members are the core of the Labor Party. Party members and local branches play a central role in innovative policy development and passionately working in the community to spread labor values. for it is now rightly proven that this ALP is only in this for what they can get out of it.

    On 1 July 2013 Federal MPs got another $4580 pay rise, taking the base salary of an average backbencher to $195,130.

    It is their third pay rise in 16 months which has delivered a typical backbencher a pay boost of $54,220 – more than $1000 a week extra since March last year.

    Julia Gillard was the first prime minister to receive a salary above $500,000, with an extra $11,908 taking her wage to $507,338. Kevin Rudd is now earning $2709 a week more after the combined impact of the three pay rises.

    Opposition Leader Tony Abbott’s pay rises by $8473 to $360,990. He is more than $1900 a week better off than 16 months ago.

    The Remuneration Tribunal today announced MPs would get a 2.4 per cent pay rise and said they could be in store for more. It will review salaries in December and has left open the chance of another pay rise before the next annual review.

    Thus. Mr Conde, Mr Prescott and Ms Segal you are now seen as a Tribunal that would be easily influenced with your links to companies that rely on Government cooperation especially with the introduction of a Carbon Tax, and leaves Australians wondering how much extra YOU received?

    Worse is certainly going to occur as the members of this Tribunal will still be there in 2015. Mr Rudd won’t want this to change, and Mr Abbott won’t stop this from occurring as he has shown already. It is our money being spent for their wages and we have a say in it when Rudd stops playing games and calls an election. However with a record number of new Parties, make sure you know where their preferences are going as I have reviewed half of these parties so far and 50 – 60% appear to be preferencing to the Left.

    Please be careful that this ALP machine of Lies and Deception don’t sneak in the back door yet again.

    Labor’s $7.6 billion carbon tax cost revealed

    February 17, 2014
    We’ve known all along that Labor’s carbon tax is inflicting massive damage on Australian households and businesses.

    Now the full extent of the damage has been revealed.

    For the first time, the Clean Energy Regulator has released figures detailing the carbon tax bills for all liable entities for the 2012-13 financial year.

    In its first year of operation, the carbon tax was a $7.6 billion hit on the Australian economy and a direct hit on around 75,000 businesses. That’s much worse than Labor ever lead on.
    348 companies have paid $6.6 billion in direct emissions liabilities in 2012-13.

    A further $1 billion has been slugged on business through reduced fuels tax credits, and through charges on the refrigeration and aviation industries.

    16 of the 20 largest carbon tax bills have gone to electricity companies. The power sector is being hit with $4.1 billion in additional costs – and that’s pushing up power bills for families.

    Manufacturing has been slugged $1.1 billion – and that’s putting pressure on jobs.

    Local councils have been slugged – and that’s pushing up rates bills.

    Regional and rural Australia is being hit with dairy and meat processors, and sugar refineries copping carbon tax bills.

    The carbon tax even hits the education sector with La Trobe University copping a bill for almost $586,000. And indirectly all schools and universities are being hit.

    The carbon tax is an attack on the entire Australian economy. What’s worse is that it doesn’t even work. Despite a $7.6 billion tax, emissions for the first 12 months barely changed by 0.1%.

    Bill Shorten has now taken ownership of Labor’s carbon tax. All Australians can blame Bill Shorten for helping to push up electricity bills and the overall cost of living.

    It’s time for Labor to get out of the way and support the repeal of the carbon tax.

    Labor trashed the economy while in government. Scrapping the carbon tax is one way Labor can undo some of the damage.
