Answer: Out the backsides of political spin merchants when price rises now are all about the helicopter Covid sit down money washing through the global economy. Well we either paid it back in real terms with increased taxes post lockdowns or let the money inflate away and no prizes for guessing which is the path of least resistance.

PS: Sound familiar?

This cant keep going like this...

A staggering 2349 construction firms have collapsed in the past year — with fears more may fall soon.

Indeed, of the 8471 business collapses for 2023, almost 28 per cent were in the building and construction industry, according to data put out by the corporate regulator.

The previous Morrison government’s HomeBuilder grant, which was introduced in June 2020 and handed out $2.52 billion to owner-occupiers who wanted to build or substantially renovate a home, turbocharged the sector.

More than 130,000 customers signed on for the program, with many tradies agreeing to the work under fixed-price contracts that soon became unsustainable as prices began to soar.

You're a pair of masochists  :cheers:
I use to watch my father, write everything down when he & mum owned a Trawler, then a taxi in Ballina, mid 70' to 82.
He bought two Taxis in Maclean, early 80's, He taught me to write it all down, especially fuel consumption. If you normally. And there was an increase in consumption, if could be a number things, Fuel filter clogged, Tyre Pressures, Air Cleaner due for replacement, Spark plugs old or needed to be resetting, old spark plug leads old. And everything I replace, maintainance, upgrades.
Even informing my insurance company of any mods, upgrades.
It's something I still do today



You don't use magic to disappear, ya use a 4x4 & Swag.
