You live in Melbourne. You should know what our dear ALP government has tried to do. How many extra legislations have they passed, all of which have caused nothing but trouble? Malaysian non-solution (hammered by the High Court as unlawful), IR laws causing THREE TIMES the amount of union strikes, alcopops tax, numerous greenie idiocies, BER scheme, do I have to go on? Even the Carbon Tax is nothing but more legislation that does nothing except to keep their cronies employed. Think about it. They are taxing you so that 50+% of it can go back to the people as "compensation". They are creating a massive new bureaucracy (i.e., government department) to do it. Where do you think that remaining 50% they collect is going to? Keeping the bureaucracy afloat. This is the same government that in NSW has over 600+ people working for it that officially does NOTHING. What does the massive new department need? Laws and "guidelines", of course. More legislation than you can shake a stick at. This is typical of a socialist government. In the name of "being good for the society", they legislate everything. Soon, you will need special dispensation to wipe your butt after taking a dump (the act of which will require an environmental approval). They will have to vett your paper to ensure that it comes from a sustainable source first.
