LETTER: LNP bad for us

UNLESS the opinion polls are wrong, it is incredible that a majority of voters would re-elect the LNP after three years of failure and broken promises.

Wages have fallen, permanent jobs have been replaced with casual, pensions have been slashed and there have been cuts to health, education and welfare services, as election promises have been trashed by Abbott and now by Turnbull.

Together with the procession of LNP ministers who have been forced to resign for corruption or disciplinary reasons, there is also a strong smell of corruption with Parakellia and the Panama Papers yet to be explored and investigated by authorities.

Can anyone truthfully say they are better off after the last three years of the "business only" experiment of the LNP?
