HOWARD GILDS THE LILY, AGAIN

In a rare adventure into the labour market program area of his responsibilities Opposition Spokesman, John Howard, ' released.a statement today quoting p.254 of "Fightbacki" claiming that,

"the Coalition will...build on the Skillshare program. "

What he overlooked was the Coaltion1s peculiar definition of "build", which appears in Fightback Supplementary Paper No.4

"There will be an increasing requirement over the decade for Skillshare groups to become self-sufficient by obtaining additional community and local industry financial support."

"Self-sufficiency", of course, implies reduced Commonwealth support.

In other words, when the Coalition says they will "build" they mean they will destroy.

That just about sums up all of Fightback!

Skillshare projects will receive $175 million this year to assist 110,000 jobseekers in a highly successful partnership between the Commonwealth and community groups.
