Traditional Liberals aimed for “getting out of the way” – but not these blokes

By 1petermcc  

The further we move along the track towards a low Carbon Economy, the clearer it is that the target is achievable, and the more obvious it is that the current Coalition Government are incapable of leading us into the Promised Land.

The recent report that we can hit our targets by government simply getting out of the way is still being argued, but Voters need to remember that Scott Morrison and his failed Minister for “Fair Dinkum Energy”, Angus Taylor, can’t help but meddle as they try to force coal into their final solution.

As much fun as it is watching the Coalition’s BBL (Big Bash Liberals) continually trying to run each other out, after a while it has a sameness in it’s daily grind, and as folk weary of that sameness, it’s time to get on with the job of easing us through the transition.

However to do that you need to look outside the dugout, and recognise that transition is occurring and inevitable.

With the increasingly likelihood of their line-up being severely reduced at the next federal election, especially the more Jurassic elements, it’s well past time for them to get their collective fingers out and become part of the solution.

Isn’t that why they originally signed up for politics in the first place? To make good decisions for Australia?

    “Isn’t that why they originally signed up for politics in the first place? To make good decisions for Australia?”

    The lying, toxic, corrupt Liberal & National members? Shit no! They’re just lining up to get free money for bugger all work. This mob must be the laziest, cruelest, most corrupt bunch of uncaught criminals to have ever crossed the threshold of parliament. Every single one of these scumbags have been caught up in some sort of corrupt behaviour.

    They ALL need to be removed to enable Australia to repair itself!

    They are not liberals, they are conservatives. And I have not seen a conservative in action who did not display a grudge against other sections of society. They are quite incapable of governing in the interests of society as a whole.

    Leaving the fun politics aside, based on the engineers’ study, it looks like the market itself is well on the way to reducing our emissions if left alone. The economics of investment now favour alternative energy supplies.

    The LNP always used to say ‘Labor are just a front-end for the Unions.’

    It is becoming very obvious to everyone that the LNP are just stooges for Big Mining. (And the Banks, until recently. The Banks don’t love them anymore.)

    I may be wrong but the fact that Aussies are installing solar power on their homes and are leading the world in doing so may well be the reason that we will meet our Paris commitments “in a canter” I would really like to know if this is the reason?

    Despite facts about renewables, the Murdoch media tells us we need Adani and India needs our coal. It talks about wealth. Nothing about cooking the planet.

    Besides, I have heard much that is bad about Adani – environment, few jobs, massive use of water, health problems, where the money goes, commercial malpractice…etc

    Be afraid, be very afraid.

    Shaun,

    You might enjoy this link from The Guardian Australia today. https://goo.gl/Z7LwTU

    It explains how the “accounting” trickery is being employed. It’s called “carry over credits” earned from Gilliard’s effective Carbon Tax.

    The future of how Labor will treat them is still up in the air but at least they are approaching from the position of denialism. See more detail here https://goo.gl/JPkd7x
