So much for the smart country
EARTHQUAKES, floods, cyclones: in the words of Tony Abbott ‘‘----’’ happens, burning fossil fuels polluting the environment ‘‘----’’ happens, the future generation looking back at what never got fixed ‘‘-- - -’’ did happen and our ancestors did nothing. They cared only about themselves and their greed.
I find it quite incredible that Sweden introduced a carbon tax in 1991 which seems to work well for 9.5 million people. British Colombia carbon tax revenue neutral works quite well.
As for Australia being the smart country one has to differ with that. A country solely dependent on mining as its main source of revenue is destined to crash.
As for a politician telling lies and Gillard is the only one guilty that is just so laughable, you must suffer from amnesia, ‘‘ there will be no GST’’ can you remember that?
But the troglodytes of the Liberal Partyare too ignorant to check these working carbon tax schemes out.
Make the big lie, keep repeating it and all will believe it. IAN BRAGG,
