THE man who sang his own version of the classic Skyhooks' hit Horror Movie has hit out at Queensland Premier Campbell Newman and Opposition Leader Tony Abbott, as "birds of a feather".
Federal Trade Minister Craig Emerson made the latest in a string of attacks on the Coalition on Monday.
He said the public could expect public service job cuts at a Federal level, similar to that in Queensland, if the Coalition was elected at the next Federal poll.
Mr Emerson said Mr Abbott and Mr Newman were "birds of a feather", and the only way the conservative parties could reach a budget surplus was to cut jobs.
But he denied the Labor Government's surplus was in any danger, after Deloitte Access Economics predicted a $4.2 billion deficit, rather than the government's estimated $1.1 billion surplus.
