Barnaby Supports Convoy Of No Confidence

20 Aug

Media Release – Senator Barnaby Joyce, 19 August 2011:

Regional Australia is coming to Canberra

I would like to offer my support to those travelling to Canberra for the convoy of no confidence rally next week. I hope everyone takes their time and has a safe trip.

The Australian people everywhere you go are starting to have one retort and it is this – can you please get rid of them?

Whether it’s the secretary at the doctor’s surgery, the taxi driver, the lady behind the till, or the person standing next to you in the queue, they are no longer surprised by just how totally and utterly incompetent the government is.

The convoy of no confidence is the inevitable consequence of a population that is just sick to the back teeth on what is happening to their country.

They are not nasty, they just want them gone. These people are a mere expression of what the majority are feeling. They are regular truck drivers, regular people who are making a political point. They are driving to Canberra to ask the government to do the decent thing and go to an election. It is like when a relationship breaks down and now the Australian people are saying they want out, or more to the point they want the government out.

There are reports today that the Government is planning to gag debate in the Parliament on the carbon tax legislation. After denying the Australian people a vote on the carbon tax, they are planning to deny the Australian Parliament a voice.

But these people can make a difference. People in regional Australia are often frustrated by the lack of a voice they have in Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

I want to remind those living outside these centres that they have changed the direction of their country over the past few years.

In 2009, it was regional Australia that first stood against Kevin Rudd’s emissions trading scheme, leading to its eventual defeat on the floor of the Senate. It was regional Australia that last year stood up against a Murray-Darling Basin Plan that was going to destroy the nation’s food bowl. And this year it was regional Australia that stood up against plans to end our live cattle trade, notwithstanding the devastation that was caused during the four weeks in which Four Corners ran the country.

All of these changes came about by the force of ordinary regional Australians standing up against the Green, nihilistic and negative vision that wants to shut down economic activity in regional Australia.

It is only half time in this fight on the carbon tax. There is no messiah coming over the hills to save us. The only way to stop this tax is for everyone to do what they can to make it happen.

Whether that is coming to Canberra on Monday, calling your local Labor or Independent members or writing to your local paper, every little effort helps to stop this tax.

    I agree. Speaking out is the way to get the attention of politicians.

    Best wishes,

    I wonder if the Greens and the Independents support this convoy? Anyone who has the internet must agree that the so called AGW science is flawed and fraudulently contrived with hidden political agendas. Not science. If the Critical Decade was fair dinkum in its scientific data why put in a disclaimer on pg.2.

    Never have I seen in the 45 years I have lived in Australia such a concerted effort by Australians to make this a momentis political protest. Although there are some greenies who think it is only from bushie yobbos. Really what a cheek! Where do most of Australia’s exports like wool, beef, and mining come from. Sydney?

    I hope Barnaby decides to take on Tony Windsor in the New England seat. He has lost me and I was a staunch supporter throughout his political career, until this last election.

    Oliver Manuel was James Hansen’s supervisor at NASA, James Hansen was Al Gore’s chief adviser when producing The Inconvenient Truth. Take notice of him please.

    Revelation of the week: Consensus science is Big Brother’s tool to control people and information. World leaders secretly formed BB to protect the world (and themselves) from the threat of mutual nuclear annihilation.

    That noble goal cannot be achieved in democratic societies by deception.

    It is encouraging news that Australian citizens are uniting in convoys headed to Canberra for a show of no confidence in their government leaders support for the AGW story and the environmentalist movement [1,2].

    Since world leaders and leaders of scientific organizations and the news media apparently secretly united about 40 years ago to support environmentalism and AGW (anthropogenic global climate change) propaganda of the day,

    Citizens of the world must unite in demanding an end to tyranny and restoration of the basic right of citizens to control their governments.

    With kind regards,
