Labor accused of launching a scare campaign



Labor has been accused of initiating a scare campaign in the lead up to next year's state election.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Illawarra GARETH WARD says Labor appears to have launched a petition against the privatisation of the South Coast rail line.
Mr Ward says there are no such plans, and it's little more than ALP scare-mongering.." That is absolutely not true. Look we saw these tactics from the Labor Party at the last Federal election, where they claimed we were privatising Medicare, which of course is absolutely not true. This is just a campaign of lies. If that's how they're gonna open the next election campaign, then I say bring it on!"
