Dear Angry, right now Tony Abbott is paying major corporates to pollute under his so-called Direct Action initiative. There's no evidence that emissions trading cost jobs and the program actually worked to reduce CO2 output. Industry has been shifting offshore because our energy costs are too high and our infrastructure is stuck in a time warp. Abbott lied not only about carbon trading but also about a raft of other things. He believes climate science is 'crap'.
His government is 'crap' and bases its so called policies on ideology.
Agribuzz with David Leyonhjelm
The single desk has not had it's day. As Ross Gittins pointed out in today's SMH 'whatever choice we make comes at an opportunity cost' and any reform comes at a significant cost. Look what has happened to our dairy producers since the industry was deregulated. The dry mantra is a dry mantra indeed.
Five words: He did a great job!
Lee McKosker, you're quite right. I bought a roast chook at Woolies recently and it was labelled 'no added hormones' so they're starting to play the disingenous game too. Coles, following the example of Tescos in the UK, has led this 'factory farming' charge.
TesColes wants animal rights to be one of the retail industry's big issues at the moment to justify its disingenuous product claims based on dodgy focus group research among middle to high income females who, from the safety of their suburban homes, don't understand livestock management and food production.
Dear Liesandmorelies, in defence of Jock Laurie's position on CSG, he has been a vocal critic of unregulated exploration and drilling licences. It's easy to throw bricks but Jock has actually made a strong contribution to rural affairs and policies. I don't particularly like the Nats but I wish him well.
Regardless of what some embittered Nationals might say, Tony was the national politician of this decade. Common sense and a clear sense of purpose. I hope he enjoys the rest of his life after years of hard work and service.
