Juliar did it - lied and now it has passed 74 to 72
Oh dear and now the death of the Labor party is just about assured as if this carbon tax kicks in next July - and by then many of the employers will have already shifted or planned ther shift off shore and jobs will be scarce as we enter if lucky a recession [and not a depression if the rest of the western world goes bust].
God help those with limited incomes when the prices rise and the compensation on electricity doesnt even cover the basics having already risen in most states to breaking point and putting up prices and we shall see the lies and spin when it goes up who is right Labor Greens Left wing media or the Coalition.
But then too late - so save like mad now to pay your way until they are gone and we get sensible government back - only around 23% still want Labor and if we got rid of compulsory voting many of them wouldn't bother to vote at all and we hopefully then can get another party up with right wing views and leave the social engineering to the Europeans who are broke too because of Labor/Green communistic socialistic brainwashing.
Most of the country who can think for themselves are already doing this which is why retailers etc are in strife no money for buying anything unessential when bankruptcy looming for the whole world on debt.
And there were we Australia after 12 years of the Coalition in a strong position no debt and 22 billion in the bank in 2007 when Labor got back in on the media saying Howard was hated and Me too all the time from Rudd who then proceeded to undo the good that Howard had done in closing off the borders to people smugglers and it was on - 12,500 and rising.
Costing billions and still they come.
Meanwhile he did the ecomomic stimulus just before Christmas but didnt wait to see if this did the job before spending more - having also not bothered to check how many of the pensioners still lived in oz before sending them cheques to stimulate their new nations and another lot of $900 went out to people long left our shores wasting millions. And many of those who did live here and got the $900 said it was a pity didnt keep it in the bank ready for a rainy day like the GFC that came and rained on Rudd's parade.
Meanwhile before this came the pink batts which lost lives of at least 4 and homes of 150 and wasted millions.
Then the BER which wasted 16 billion but made a lot of unionists happy when a carport which costed out at $150K got sold to Labor for around $450K and so it went on all overseen by wait for it Julia Gillard.
Then the pensioners being promised a rise arrived 18 months later with prices rising meantime and it went only to singles and not marrieds and the gap is wider than ever.
What a shame - they managed to out Sophie but then that was 1 and added to 72+74 still had missing 3 MPs, anyone know who?
It is a given that this will pass in the upper house if all remains the same with the Greens having balance of power.
Lots of prayers will be rising up asking for a miracle before it comes to pass methinks many will find God once again or hope someone is listening! Because the government is certainly not and hasnt for a long time.
