Gillard Carbon Tax is Hurting Families
Australian Government Attacks Opponents of the Carbon Tax
The Australian government is now on the offensive and is doing everything in its power to reduce and manipulate negative reporting about the Australian Carbon Tax. Recently, the Australian Communications and Media Authority found that a Sydney morning breakfast radio host (Alan Jones) breached the commercial radio code of practice by claiming that ‘human beings produce 0.001% of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere’. Although this statement may not necessarily be true, the Australian Communications and Media Authority found that there was no reason to pursue the radio host on his slanderous statements against the Prime Minister in which he said “the Prime Minister Julia Gillard should be put in a chaff bag and thrown out to sea”, but rather that the comments made by the radio host about the carbon tax where more serious and deserved punishment.
Considering that Australia is in the middle of an electoral cycle and the Gillard carbon tax would have been in effect for at least one and a half years until the next election, there is still a chance that the Australian Carbon Tax can be revoked.
The leader of the opposition, Tony Abbott, has been quoted in reference to the Carbon Tax saying “what parliament has done, parliament can undo” and “getting rid of the Carbon Tax is as simple as getting legislation through the Parliament”. When questioned about the resistance he would receive from the opposition if he repeal’s the tax, he said that “the constitution provides for a double dissolution precisely to accommodate a situation where a recalcitrant Senate is frustrating the mandate of the elected government”.
Unfortunately, the option of using a double dissolution now to stop the introduction of a Carbon Tax is not possible at the present moment because the Senate in Australia is controlled by the Greens Party (who support the globalist Carbon Tax) and not the opposition party (Liberal Party). Please note, the author of this article does not support any political party in Australia, but is making reference to the fact that the Liberal party in Australia are the only ones who are willing to revoke this dreadful globalist Carbon Tax.
At the end of the day most Australians do not want a Carbon Tax and would prefer if the Australian Federal government would reverse its decision to introduce a Carbon Tax. The Gillard carbon tax won’t reduce carbon dioxide emissions and will harm the Australian economy and hinder the opportunities and dreams of all Australians for many years to come.
