Happy to pay more tax

Our report into Australian attitudes to taxation was launched today. The report can be downloaded by clicking here.

Polling question concocted to show Katter on 25%

A Galaxy poll reported in The Courier Mail yesterday said that Bob Katter's Australian Party could possibly score 25% of the vote at the next state election. The question is poorly worded and the result almost certainly wrong.
