Comment on GST billions yet we’re still the basket case by James T Smerk.

Also if we really do need to supply housing to people wanting to live “on the land” why not bang out a stack of demountable housing?
They are cheap, say $50,000 as opposed to building a $600,000 standard house which takes four months and they only get two or three per community.
Everyone has a house and everyone is happy, ordinary repairs come out of royalties or government payment, then they might not get damaged so much. There is a huge saving for the government.

I think they shouldn’t go off the census data but more off birth stats, school records, hospital stats and prison stats.
Here is where you will identify who really needs the help not the 25 year old living in Sydney that thinks it’s cool or trendy to start claiming when they haven’t lived a moment in the culture. All level of government need to pull their heads out of the sand and sort it out already, the money tap is constantly running on full-bull and only drips are getting to the needy few.
