Actions speak louder than words, results more than rhetoric. Peter Costello summarised it perfectly this morning. Wayne Swan really is out of his depth. Last year, Mr Swan promised no less than 500 times that he would deliver a budget surplus this year.
Senator Scott Ryan spoke in strong opposition against the Gillard Government’s attempt to regulate the media and stifle free speech in Australia.
Many brave Australians have risked their lives to help defend our country.Some have contributed to our defence in times of war but also times of peace and it is vital that we recognise their service. Medals such as the Anniversary of National Service Medal and the Australian Defence Medal help commemorate and recognise the contribution made to Australia by people in our community.
