M_F: What is the deal here? Yes, I know Australia is one of those places no-one ever talks about, but have you stopped to take a peak at what the govt is doing to us over here? Already we are one of the most over-taxed nations in the wold, and yet they're introducing a GST! Yes, of course this will bring down the income tax rates, but some of the stuff is just over the top.

Qx: In Canada, the GST was introduced by a pseudo-conservative clone by the name of Brian Mulroney under the pretext that it would serve as a good substitute for the then existing manufacturer's sales tax. Of course these politicos had to also claim that it would help finance payments on the national deficit. What a crock!
