“We are the most successful multicultural nation in the world and barely a day goes past
when I don’t rejoice in that and publicly rejoice in that. The foundation of that is mutual
respect and barely a day goes past when I don’t talk about that too.
We are enriched by the diversity, the cultural diversity of our neighbours. We are all
stronger. Our 24 million Australians – magnificent in our diversity, remarkable in our success
as a multicultural nation – they are our greatest assets, not the rocks under the ground. But
you know, for them to thrive, for them to have the opportunities they deserve, to be able to
realise their dreams, they need that strong economic growth. They need a government that
recognises the time and the tenor of the times in which we live and recognises, yes, there
are opportunities unprecedented. There are opportunities unimagined a very short time
ago. There are technologies in daily use that we barely dreamed of a generation ago.
But all of that requires leadership. It requires a plan because this is a world of opportunity,
but also of competition. It is a world of great opportunity, but also of great risk.
So, that is why the choice is so clear. Right across our nation, the choice on Saturday is clear
- my team, a stable Coalition majority Government, with a clear national economic plan that
will enable Australians in all of their diversity to realise their dreams.
On the other hand, the chaos, the uncertainty, the debt, the deficit, the higher taxes,
slowing investment, deterring employment, depriving Australians of those opportunities –
that is the choice. It’s a clear one.
That is why I am saying to Australians, on Saturday and right up to Saturday for stability, for
direction, for leadership, for growth, the choice is to vote for Liberal and National
candidates in the House and in the Senate.”
