Dear A.S.S. Editor
The supporters of the whites must be very happy today, going to town with the news that the government is giving rebates to 880,000 households worth up to $120m in S&CC charges. In fact, it is all over the news, confirm front page news and later tonight the first news item on TV.
How can it not be? Government is helping us, give rebates so we don’t have to struggle to pay S&CC. What these idiot supporters don’t see is that in view of the rebates to be given, S&CC were raised last year, and done on the quiet. No big news indicating the raise of S&CC. So, next month, we get rebates for essentially a fee that was raised by the authorities in the first place.
And once this rebate is done and dusted with, by end of the year at least, we will be saddled with a higher S&CC fee. Of course, no one will talk about this. After all, didn’t the government just give us rebates in April? Smart move. Manipulative, but smart.
