Day Six And Still No Answers from Either Party on Pokies

Both Peter Gutwein and Rebecca White are being willfully evasive with Tasmanian voters over their respective positions on pokies.

The Premier refuses to tell Tasmanians what casinos pokies tax rate has been negotiated with the Farrell family, for a deal that extends until 2043 and could cost the State budget hundreds of millions of dollars.

Peter Gutwein pretends he’s answered the question, and that the Liberals’ position has been made ‘perfectly clear’. 

He hasn’t, and it isn’t.  

Rebecca White, meanwhile, has given no indication Labor has a different pokies policy from the Liberals.

They’re both in line to do the gambling industry’s bidding, and treating Tasmanian voters like mugs.
