Barnaby: Greens Gag Debate

12 Oct

Media Release – Senator Barnaby Joyce, 12 October 2011:

The Greens party has devolved from the paragon of virtue, a party that once espoused freedom of speech in the Chamber, a party that once had as one of their premier pillars that they would never guillotine debate.

Today, the Greens party supported the guillotine so that the Nationals could not deliver a speech on the introduction of the carbon tax bills into the Senate.

The Australian people should be aware that the sense that Bob Brown and the Greens were inherently decent political operators, in that they had strong views but respected the views of others, is no longer the case. No, the truth is that the Greens party has strong views and deny the views of others.

Even my attempts to make a brief statement to the Senate this morning on this matter were denied. For those who supported the Greens as an alternative, because their views were circumscribed by politics, well now the Green party is doing precisely that.

Possibly, there are those who went from the Democrats to the Greens party who are starting to wonder where they have arrived.

    Unfortunately the environmental movement was used as a propaganda tool to subvert democracy.

    Today was a complete disgrace. I am now officially ashamed to say that I am an Aussie. We no longer have our own country, we are ruled by usurpers.
