Shorten joins the Hanson flip-flop fellowship

June 29, 2018

Labor leader Bill Shorten has flip-flopped on his "Captain's Call" plan to scrap company tax cuts for medium-sized businesses.

Earlier this week Mr Shorten said a Labor government would repeal corporate tax cuts for businesses with a turnover of between $10 million and $50 million but has now said that he would not reverse tax cuts that are already coming into effect.

The Conservative Party supports the Coalition government’s tax reform package in full which does not put a cap on company earnings.

Speaking to the media after this morning's shadow cabinet meeting, Mr Shorten said Labor remained committed to scrapping tax cuts for "the big end of town".

Pauline Hanson was the first to flip-flop on whether or not she planned to support the full package and remains undecided and Bill Shorten’s behaviour this week has not been any better.
