What a nauseating display of expedient, political backflipping we’ve just witnessed with the coalition, (especially the Nationals) pitifully attempting to agree on even something vaguely resembling a serious climate policy for ‘Scotty’ to take to Glasgow and sit with the grownups around the table. Even this motor mouthed blowhard is going to struggle to sell this one. This is the coalition at their absolute worst.
The Nationals’ spin is that ‘they’re not going to be rushed into making bad decisions without having all the facts on the table’. Seriously, the facts have been on the table for a decade, they can’t handle facts, they’ve made a litany of poor decisions regarding climate change policies while ignoring the protests of their farming constituents.
How is this corruption-infested, incompetent rabble going to get out of this mess? Will we be subjected to another rorting campaign like (Nationals) Bridget McKenzie’s infamous ‘sports-rorts’ scandal. Then came the Building Better Regions rorts, where money meant for regional infrastructure was spent in marginal metropolitan seats on swimming pools.
Then, the daddy of all rorts, the Commuter Car Park rort, (Pork and Ride), where millions were promised, to alleviate congestion in marginal seats, and mostly never built. This seriously bad government cannot continue. Labor government with afederal ICAC. Now.
