Abbott urges revolt against carbon tax
Opposition Leader Tony Abbott has urged workers to “rise up” against Labor in protest at the carbon tax, which will come into effect on July 1.
Visiting a Melbourne bed-making factory on Monday, Mr Abbott said the carbon tax would act like a “reverse tariff” affecting Australian manufacturing while benefiting overseas competitors.
He said Labor purported to represent workers but was attacking their jobs.
“The carbon tax will go like a wrecking ball through the Australian economy,” Mr Abbott told reporters in Deer Park.
The workers of Australia have said “no carbon tax”, loudly and clearly.
Over 88% of votes at the last election, went to parties promising that there would not be one (Labor, and the LNP).
You want US to rise up?! What exactly do you mean by … “rise up”?
Here’s an idea Tony.
How about the NSW and QLD LNP State premiers make good on their loud, solemn pre-election promises?
Your banker mates – including Joe Hockey’s wife, and Malcolm’s Goldman Sachs buddies, et al – won’t let you?
Because they are now within mere weeks of being able to start up their long-awaited, 100% unregulated, unmonitored, CO2 derivatives Ponzi scheme disguised as a “market mechanism” for “emissions reduction”?
