On Line Opinion (2012)
  • Jo Coghlan, Southern Cross University
Writing in The Daily Telegraph, ahead of the budget, federal Treasurer Wayne Swan wants all 'All Australians to share the wealth.' As he says: "readers want nothing more than a fair go for themselves and their families. It's what I firmly believe in, and it's what the Gillard Labor government is all about." Pitching his fifth budget he goes on to say the federal budget: "…will deliver a real dividend for low and middle income Australians all over Sydney and NSW."
