The most incompetent Chief Minister since self government must stop lying over his economic mismanagement and the Commonwealth Grants Commission’s distribution of GST funds to the Territory.
Fact: GST funding has never been cut by $500 million in ANY year. Michael Gunner cannot point to any Budget paper that includes a $500 million cut and is straight out lying.
Fact: The Coalition Government provided a $259.6 million top up payment in 2017-18 to help the Northern Territory Government deliver essential services.
Fact: The Coalition Government will provide a further $252.1 million top up payment in 2019-20 to help the Northern Territory Government deliver essential services.
Fact: GST funding will increase by $42.3 million in 2019-20
Fact: The Northern Territory will receive a $189 million boost to their share of the GST distribution pool between 2021-22 and 2026-27.
Fact: Reductions in GST under Gunner have been the result of people fleeing the Territory due to the lack of jobs and out of control crime and violence.
Fact: GST funding has now been protected for every jurisdiction moving forward by changes to the GST formula delivered by the Coalition Government.
Fact: While Gunner lies about GST he does nothing to improve community safety or provide essential services for the community.
Fact: While Gunner lies about GST Territory homes and business are getting broken into every single night
Fact: While Gunner lies about GST our streets are rife with crime and violence.
Fact: While Gunner lies about GST he is failing to develop industries such as gas and manufacturing.
Fact: While Gunner lies about GST, Bill Shorten can’t be trusted on our national security, given Labor cut $18 billion from Defence when last in government.
These are the facts that Gunner is hiding from Territorians with his ongoing lies and deception.
Don’t believe Territory Labor’s lies anymore.
