Julie’s GST campaign

Before your read the HFE report sent to the Federal Treasurer on 15 May 2018, take a look at Julie’s GST Campaign and its success so far.

Here’s why….

In the 2016 federal election, Julie was the only candidate to run a GST campaign despite rejection by politicians and the media that nothing could be done WITHOUT the agreement from the other states. Do you remember this Advert in The West?

The West, 1 July 2016


The advert reads:

For our rightful share of the GST

To match the infrastructure spend.

For our rightful share of the excise fuel tax.

In October 2016, Julie registers the party with the WA Electoral Commission to continue the GST campaign in the WA State Election. The media and politicians still rejected her GST campaign with the same old line that the other states would need to agree, so give up!

Julie didn’t give up. The party nominated 32 candidates and received more than 11,400 first preference votes in the March 2017 State Election.

The party makes a submission to the Productivity Commission to support 100% of the GST to remain in WA, and abolish state taxes such as payroll tax, transfer duty and insurance dutyRead more here>>
