Invitation Accepted!!!And how could I resist - after all Joe is the Treasurer that promised so much but has delivered so little.
What a great opportunity to ask some pertinent questions, like:
Who are the real leaners v lifters?
What are the facts about negative gearing?
How does an emergency budget deficit become a walk in the park?Why are rising house prices good for our youth?
Why are we running a big Australia policy when we have rising unemployment and falling incomes?
What will the budget deficit look like when Iron Ore is US$20 per tonne?
Why do we have a Treasury Dept that cannot budget with an annual expenditure of $b when a $99 subscription to www.Macrobusiness.com.au would provide better research?
I'd welcome any other suggestions we could ask the Hon Member.
Update - smackdown postposed due to last minute ministerial commitments and has been rescheduled, with the new date being Wednesday 28 October, 7:30-9:00am.
