I have gone over the thread a number of times and see no comments..
Do I need new glasses again..?
There are many economists who maintain that Australia would not have been adversely effected by the GFC..
So spending for the sake of spending, did massive damage to the economy.
Whilst Rude may have overseen the start of the insulation program , I think it was Gillard who removed it. (May be wrong - and it is irrelevant anyway )
Bottom line.. again... roof insulation could seriously impact on reducing power consumption.. we agree on that..!
The fact that our Government could not manage the program, only proved their inability to manage anything..
