“Strong Choices” backfires..

A piece carried in today’s Courier Mail highlights the well documented, and much commented on, failings of the QLD government’s “Strong Choices” website. 
Our friend Gene Tunny over at Queensland Economy Watch has previously posted at some length on the inherent problems with the site and the way that the LNP are trying to “sell” the idea of asset sales to the electorate and has returned to the subject today. The LNP will no doubt be rather embarrassed that their pitch appears not to have persuaded people of the need to divest state assets; people would rather see taxes go up. This result simply highlights how badly the economic rationale behind asset sales has been made by its supporters and shows up the “Strong Choices” website for the flawed PR stunt it always was.
