Yesterday the MSM outlets began to report that Brisbane rates would go up to pay the $400M plus bill to repair the damage from flooding in Brisbane. This was on many of the TV stations, repeated in the news.
This was a lie, Campbell Newman said that he wanted to find the money from what they had and by cutting projects already mooted.
Brisbane rates are rising in line with the CPI (shame my rates don't rise in line with the CPI, but above it!).
Today's reports I can google are saying that Brisbane rates won't rise due to the floods.
I'm sure other people would have heard that media lie.
If you don't like the news, or if there isn't any, just make some up!
