Do as I say, not as I do 

A timely warning:

"The Federal Opposition is urging Australians not to be fooled by what it says will be a pre-election tax bribe."

"Don't vote for the party that's trying to bribe you and buy your vote," said Wayne Swan, the Opposition's spokesman on Family and Community Services.

Meanwhile, on another planet:

"[The Labor Opposition leader] Mr Latham, who delivers his budget reply speech in parliament on May 13, said Labor was committed to cutting effective marginal tax rates... Mr Latham said Labor's starting point would be to reduce the tax burden on workers who also receive social security payments."

I do hope that all those workers who receive social security will not vote for the party that is trying to bribe them and buy their vote.
