After careful consideration, I decided to send an email to federal treasurer Peter Costello last night, via the treasury website contact form .
Dear Mr. Costello,
I don’t normally write letters to ministers, and when I do I am usually complaining about something, this however is not one of those occasions. Instead, this is just a short message to thank you for guiding the Australian economy in the right direction, paying off our debts, putting the budget in surplus, and providing sensible tax relief.
I know you aren’t one to speculate about leadership issues, but if the time should come that you become party leader, you will most likely have my support, as there is a very wise and level head upon your shoulders (and you’re not a bad singer either).
Does anybody else here think that an album of Peter Costello singing songs (including Abba’s “Money Money Money”) would be an instant success and add to the budget surplus?
