Nice. 3c per litre fuel levy for 5 years paid for the idiots

We've had levies for far less (e.g. the bullshit budget repair levy). So the big question is, would there be a massive levy applied to everything  to cover bank failures and hme loan defaults?  Maybe a "temporary" doubling of the GST, fuel surcharges, increased income tax on anyone earning over ten cents, etc.

Re: Bank deposit guarantee

In the case of massive bank failures governments can't sell debts because no bids on their bonds. The end result is, the government itself defaults. In the case if one lager banks fails like Deutsche Bank the government has no option to step in to take it over to stop the domino effect, but they can't do this in the case of massive large systematic bank failures as they will be hopeless.

The US dollars and Treasury debt called "risk off" because the global fiat system can only survive as long as that remains the case.
