Today I sent an open letter to Josh Frydenberg via his web site. I don't expect him to read it or answer but someone in his office will flick through it. the text follows.
Dear Mr. Frydenberg
I have had the opportunity to hear your contributions to our Parliament on more than once now and today was the most recent.
Listening to you speak I realise what a polished debater you are speaking in a clear voice and without the reflexive Abbott repetition. You also come across as a man of learning - I realise that you are an Oxford trained Rhodes scholar but clearly all Rhodes scholars are not equal.
The issue for me is that Parliament to have value and the trust of the people should not be just about debating skill and team blood sports. Your contribution on the state of debt left to you by the ALP contained inaccuracies, errors, historical fictions and for a man with your skills and erudition what can only be described as lies.
If debt is such a terrible thing why do all the ASX listed companies have debt on their balance sheet?
Why was Wayne Swan awarded the best Treasurer in the world by an international; and arm's length body?
Why did your party in opposition vote against stimulus on every occasion and talk down the Australian economy?
Why is consumer confidence at an all time low when interest rates are similarly low?
Why do you treat us as mugs while not addressing these issues?
The voters are not stupid. The tidal waves of Victoria, Queensland and soon NSW are coming to you. what will you say then?
Your campaign of prolonged negativity worked in the short term but it is no way to govern a country.
I assume you know all this but like your partner Greg Hunt knowing that you are lying to the Australian people and supporting damaging policies is worse than doing it with belief. You will be judged on your record and there are no safe seats anymore.
This will be an open letter which I will publish on my web site because I believe in transparency in public debate and I will also not lie to further self interest.
You bring shame on your parents.
