There was a fantastic letter featured in The Australian on 23 July under the heading “PM Chooses Meaningless Rhetoric Over Policy”.  After weeks of completely biased reporting spruiking growth in The Australian, it’s great to see that a reader has rational and balanced thinking.  Here  is a copy of the letter from Clive Huxtable at Beaconsfield which was published in The Australian on Friday 23 July.  Congratulations to Clive and congratulations to the Letters Editor of The Australian for publishing this important opinion.
