    Taxation avoidance is our national sport. Each year at the end of June millions of of true blue Aussies are feverishly filling in their taxation returns scheming on how to pay less tax.

    Of course, the millionaires get their highly skilled accountants to minimize their tax or indeed no tax!

    Not many seem to question how all this taxation avoidance is the reason why our health- care, education, social welfare are suffering.

    Our Government is encouraging tax avoidance by promising tax cuts on top of all that as well.

    And our children and grandchildren’s future? It dares not think about.
