Tim Andrews, of the Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance writes
“There will be no carbon tax under the government I lead.”
This was the solemn pledge made by Prime Minister Gillard just days before the last election.
It was with this pledge that she was voted into office.
It was with this pledge that she raised her right hand and said : “I do swear that I will well and truly serve the Commonwealth of Australia, her land and her people in the office of Prime Minister”
It was this pledge that she broke.
The carbon dioxide tax is:
- A tax that will hit every family.
- A tax that will kill jobs and force businesses to close.
- A tax that will destroy our economy.
- And a tax that will do nothing to help the environment.
We should also remember that NCTCS is the only party that is against the hoax of the falsified hypothesis that man made CO2 emissions are/will cause runaway global warming. We must fight the lies.
The time is ripe to try to persuade the Opposition to not only say it will abandon the tax but also should abandon its policy on renewables.
