    As a columnist, Bob Hogg has sometimes expressed views at variance with those of the ALP; during the 1999 debate on a GST he criticised those opposing the tax (including independent Brian Harradine) on the grounds that such a tax would ensure funding for policies traditionally advocated by Labor, such as state schools and hospitals.
