  • The Idiots are the voters who voted this nerd into office, and those who did not vote that allowed her into office.

    This will cost the Australian people for years to come.

  • WHEN are the stupid numbheads that fall for all this b***s**t going to wake up were being scammed ,First it was global warming but they changed the catch cry to CLIMATE CHANGE, broad description,embraces a lot of things.
    Do I believe in climate change?, course only a fool wouldnt,climates been changing for a billion years,just read history books to realise that.
    What I dont believe is the fantasy reasons they give for it,if they were fair dingcum the first step they should take is ban and get rid of the the greatest polluter of all, MOTOR CARS.
    With the proliferation over the last few years of earthquakes,tsaunamies,volcanoes and new terminal viruses and diseases, to say nothing of the wars in the middle east I think the populace, particularly politicions should have a good read of the new testament book of Revelations'
    they might find something even more frightening to scare the voters with.
    As for the CARBON TAX, to me a tax is but a tax and if anyone is silly enough to believe you can stop climate change with money and fall for this rort they desrve to fleeced,remember the millenium bug,that was a good one.
    To big business or any business ,a cost is a cost and will be passed on to the consumer; so to suggest you will be reimbursed is a fantasy,the simple rule of bookkeeping is every debit has an equally corresponding credit,think about it.
    GST,the demon everyone has forgotten about,hasnt it dawned that as prices rise as a result of the carbon tax so will the amount of money reaped in by the government in gst.
    Well I say its a scam but by gee its a big one

  • Jason if you are right I then need an explanation from John Howard why he never mention the selling the last bit Telstra during the 2004 election. Another explanation about the so call Children Overboard Jason if John Howard can't offer an explanation I'm sure you can.

    John Howard was involved with me being made unemployed and his policy keep me unemployed for nearly five years thanks God for the labor Party I'm working now That right Jason just look after you and your family but don't destroy mine in the process If I survived the John Howard Horror years you can survive this

  • Jason, nice questions. You do have a right to vote for your representative in the house of representatives and the senate. You did this, I assume, at the last election, as did every other citizen.
    You do not have a right to vote on every piece of legislation that this duly elected parliament deliberates upon.
    That would be unworkable, and would defeat the purpose of an election in the first place.
    Seemingly you only want elected Governments to enact populist policy. That is the road to destruction my friend. Sometimes Governments must enact unpopular policy (See: GST) for the greater good.
    You will have your say once again at the next election. There will be one, I guarantee it.
    Again, I repeat; IF you are one of those that voted for an elected Labor representative THEN you can say "I was lied to". On the other hand, if you voted against Labor, then really it is a very moot point.
    The rest of your post is gobbledegook but I love the fact that you think that no elected government should "implement a policy that [affects] all [and] sundry". Thats a hoot!

  • How sad that this lying despot will go down in history as Australia's first female prime minister, and most hated. At least she never held office by a majority vote but needed lies and bribes to get there. She has destroyed the ALP for decades to come.
