We don’t care about our financial situation Ms Gillard, we don’t care about our jobs, we don’t care about our economic prosperity. Just take it take it all. I’ve got some cash in my back pocket, why don’t you just reach in and take it. While you’re at it, why don’t you help yourself to another $12 mill to fund your new add campaign.
This is not a joke. The government is actually going to spend $12 million of our dollars in order to make us want this tax forced down our throats. They are ripping us off twice over, a two-pronged attack, all to save Gillard’s political skin. GetUp already has their own add campaign with Carbon Cate, can that not suffice for Gillard, Brown and their cronies? Why do they have to dig into taxpayers money to fund their new propaganda campaign?
I don’t want to jump the gun, but I just know the content of these adds will make my blood boil. How can they possibly sell this tax without resorting to lies and rhetoric?
We need to keep up with the rest of the world; nope, China’s doing nothing.
Climate change is real; duh.
It is man made; show me the evidence.
We need to progress to a low-carbon economy; WTF?
You will be compensated; how many of us, and how much, and doesn’t that defeat the purpose?
We will only tax the top polluters; pollution huh? Okay, just lie to my face, that’s fine.
Your government loves you so just do what your dear leader says. Yada, yada, yada, lies, lies, lies and sheer propaganda!
This tax can only be bad, and no amount of adds, lies and propaganda can change the truth. If the government will not go to an election, then we have two choices:
1) Make our voices heard. Go to protests, write to the paper, your local MP. Listen to Lord Monckton or Vaclav Klaus speak when they arrive in Australia.
2) One of the independants can come along and save us. They may risk their seats and their balance of power, but history will remember whoever is first to summon the courage to dump the government, as the man who saved Australia from the carbon dioxide tax. Mr Wilkie, Mr Oakeshott, Mr Windsor; please do what is right. Don’t let the government pass this tax.
