With spiking petrol prices, a housing market that’s about to drop down and company tax cuts on the horizon, it was no wonder that the opposition Labour party would chose to attack Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull over his wealth, but still there was surprise amongst politicians over this descent into ‘American-styled negative ads.’

Labor launched a television ad this week, claiming that Mr Turnbull, whom is referred to as a ‘former banker helping his friends’, chose to launch the corporate tax cuts as he will personally benefit from those given his massive shareholdings in big business.

According to the Australian Prime Minister, Labor was now “abandoning everything that it used to stand for."

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">PM Turnbull on “mean-spirited” ALP company tax ads: “they want to attack me for having quid… having a go, investing… making money and paying tax” <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/auspol?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#auspol</a> <a href="https://twitter.com/SBSNews?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@SBSNews</a> <a href="https://t.co/66QzwBcVCx">pic.twitter.com/66QzwBcVCx</a></p>&mdash; Brett Mason (@BrettMasonNews) <a href="https://twitter.com/BrettMasonNews/status/1011006936001609728?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">June 24, 2018</a></blockquote>

He furthermore defended his right to make money.

"They want to attack me for having a quid. They want to attack me and Lucy for working hard and having a go. Luce and I have done that all our lives.

"Making money. Paying tax, you're not allowed to have a go. Make money. Work hard. The old Labor leaders would be horrified by Bill Shorten's politics of envy."

However, Ms Pauline Hanson, the senator and leader of the One Nation party whose support Mr Turnbull needs to pass the tax cuts legislation, said she would still be ‘voting no.’

Ms Hanson claimed: "We are losing a lot of money. Let's look where the revenue is coming from. I'm not backing away from this."
