Howard's Poison Chalice

Has anyone noticed that now that Lazarus has run out of bypass options, he is planning to run the country from beyond the grave?

By committing the next Federal Government, which is bound to be Labor now, to massive and irresponsible tax cuts and misapplied spending, he is handing over a poisoned chalice from which he and his ilk can blame labor for inflationary spending over the life of the next few governments.

Let us hope that Labor for once will do the pragmatic thing and make its own distinctions about core and non-core promises when it comes to taxation policy.

It's all very well to blame politicians, but when the swinging voters are arguably, very arguably, greedy morons, whaddayagonnado?
