Both Julia Gillard and Greg Combet lied outright at the last election.
12 August 2010 - Swan on the ABC:
Treasurer Wayne Swan has promised a re-elected Labor government will not put a tax on carbon during its next term of office.
Opposition treasury spokesman Joe Hockey pressed Mr Swan on the issue on Thursday, demanding to know whether Australia would be hit with a carbon tax in the next three years under Labor.
”We have made our position very clear, we have ruled it out,” the treasurer told ABC Television
18 August 2010 - Swan on Meet The Press:
"What we rejected is this hysterical allegation that somehow we are moving towards a carbon tax."
16 August 2010 - Gillard on Channel 10:
"There will be no carbon tax under the government I lead."
20 August 2010 - Gillard in The Australian.
"I rule out a carbon tax."
Now I'm waiting to see the Canberra Press Gallery and 'The Age' print numerous articles condemning Gillard and the government for their Lies, somehow I think I'll be waiting some considerable time.
These Lying, Duplicitous, Fools are going to take a large amount of our money and waste it just to keep Bob Brown and his cohort of Idiots happy.
Look forward to your standard of living being considerably reduced over the next few years and it will stay reduced as even if the next government repeals the Tax we will have lost several years of growth.
And for What? This Tax will make not a jot of difference to the temperature anywhere. If the entire population of Australia committed suicide tomorrow and the country sank under the sea it would not have any effect on world temperatures, none.
I just don't understand why this isn't front page news. I weep for my children.
