‘They can’t afford it’: Pauline Hanson tells Government to ditch renewable energy obsession
Pauline Hanson has a simple message for the Government, who is continuing in their quest to put much needed downward pressure on energy prices.
Ditch the obsession with renewable energy ideology and pursue a genuinely agnostic approach to power.
“What we’ve heard over the years is the same old rhetoric. The renewables, the whole fact is we can’t afford them as a country,” Hanson tells Luke Grant.
“People are paying through their taxes for the subsidies for renewables, then we’re paying for it in higher prices as well.”
“We need to deliver cheap power because I’ve got industry, manufacturing and families suffering because they can’t pay their power bills. People are going to shut up shop, leave the country and take their business overseas because of escalating power prices.”
“They can’t afford it.”
“So stop pushing for this renewable energy. It is a way for the future, but it’s not the only way.”
