So, bribes can work
Bit of a shame really, and with our deficit climbing at around $2 billion per week, how many times will the Gillard government be able to bribe itself into some (short term?) popularity?
Labor’s targeted cash handouts to lower-income earners in the budget saw the government’s popularity jump to 30 per cent of the primary vote, up from 27 per cent last fortnight.
A bit of a shame because as adults, we should be able to see past expensive gimmicks.
