Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Climate Change, Coal and the Flushing Toilet

Sometimes I wonder why people seem to have stopped caring about climate change. Is it because it’s too big? Is it because we have a Prime Minister who is in a dirty love triangle with coal and gas? Or is it the convenience of the flushing toilet?

Jenny Coman, Bangalow

Again, sincere thanks to Mungo for his summary of events leading to our current, utterly dismal political situation; chaos indeed.

We’ve suffered disappointing and dishonest political leadership before but none, I think, with quite the lack of integrity and/or credibility of this lot, particularly the chief marketeer.

One can only hope back-benchers keep to their principles and we can look forward to an early election.

  1. Mankind is going backwards in morals and ethics and in honesty and loyalty.
    It is a truism that it does not matter who you choose you always choose a politician.
    That is because the huge pool of Mankind that we choose politicians from is becoming corrupted and less honest as we get bigger and bigger. The more competition in an expanding population the more we have to lie and cheat to get ahead.
    And so the people who are noticed and who rise to the top are not the good people but the rotten apples.
    If I am not right, review these words in six months time when we change governments and we change to Labor. Within months the call will be “Just why did we change to Labor as they are as bad as the Liberals.”
    We expect better when they are the same but different. They are all politicians.
