"Truth is absolute, truth is supreme,
truth is never disposable in national
political life."
ABC Radio "AM", 25 August 1995 John Howard:"No, there's no way that a GST
will ever be part of our policy."

Journalist:"Never ever?"

John Howard: "Never ever. It's dead. It was
killed by the voters in the last election".

"Suggestions I have left open the possibility
of a GST are completely wrong.
A GST or anything resembling it is no longer
Coalition policy. Nor will it be policy at any
time in the future. It is completely off the
political agenda in Australia."
