Yale you have done very well here to point out the villainous nature of the left leaning parties when it comes to this most pernicious tax and spend regime. Further the fact that he has even said this should be retold every-time that the Labor party claims that it believes the next election is winnable by Gillard because thsi sort of thinking is absolute evidence that they are lying (again) about their election prospects.
- The problems with Labor
- Why does Australia hate democracy?
- “There is absolutely no margin for lying.” or Julia Gillard big wedgies and the preaching of the newly converted
- Because of two naughty boys in the party a messiah needed to raise Labor from the dead, even it makes them into political zombies
- Gillard hoses down talk of leadership rumblings

With the Government’s hated carbon tax now less than three weeks from taking effect, the ALP has promised to do everything it can in opposition — after the next election — to prevent the repeal of the tax. Such a stand is breathtaking in its arrogance, and sets a very dangerous precedent.
An article by Greg Sheridan in yesterday’s edition of The Australian — quoting Climate Change minister Greg Combet from ABC Radio — nails Combet firmly to the mast in highlighting what can only be described as a worryingly belligerent philosophy on Combet’s part that, if implemented, would amount to a flagrant disregard for democracy by the Labor Party as a whole.
Before we rip into it — and, for the record, into Combet — I should point out that there have been hints of this approach to the carbon tax from Labor and from for some months. The fact Combet now appears to be doing interviews, presenting this proposed course cogently and from an apparent position of organisational readiness, heralds a new phase in the ALP’s planning for opposition.
