After hearing a mildly dubious phone call to John Kerr on 2CC this morning, I have sent the following email to Tanya Plibersek MP, the Labor member for the federal seat of Sydney and shadow minister for human services, housing, youth and women.
Dear Ms. Plibersek,
I am writing in relation to call to 2UE’s overnight program (relayed through a number of other stations) at about 1:30 this morning (Monday September 17, 2007) in which the caller claimed to have received an email from your office stating that, if Labor are elected to government, you plan on increasing the petrol excise by six cents per litre.
I must say that I find this claim quite extraordinary, and I am wondering if it is accurate. Do you plan on increasing the petrol excise by six cents per litre, or any other amount for that matter?
Please note that I am publishing this email on my website at http://samuelgordonstewart.com/2007/09/petrol-excise and intend on publishing your reply unless you explicitly request otherwise.

I have blotted out my mobile number in this reproduction, however I did include it in my email to Ms. Plibersek. I look forward to her reply.
