Where have the in­tel­lec­tu­als gone?

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

CON­SER­VA­TIVES in Aus­tralia are no longer re­laxed and com­fort­able it seems so of course they think things must change and the Coali­tion must be brought back into power.

But down the bar­rel of a gun?

In­de­pen­dent Tony Winds or has been r eceiv­ing death threats be­cause of his sup­port for the Gil­lard gov­ern­ment and in par­tic­u­lar the car­bon tax. Not sur­pris­ing: Alan Jones, ra­dio talk­back host and long-time Lib­eral Party sup­porter, has been pub­li­cis­ing Wind­sor’s phone num­ber and en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to vent their spleen.

At the same time we have the Op­po­si­tion Min­is­ter for Im­mi­gra­tion Scott Mor­ri­son den­i­grat­ing Mus­lims, t he move against t erri­to­ries’ rights to gov­ern them­selves and the con­tin­u­a­tion of ef­forts to squash a car­bon tax on the ma­jor pol­luters at the ex­pense of or­di­nary house­holds.

This will be the pol­icy plat­form that the Lib­eral Party will take to the next elec­tion.
