Is anyone listening to the PM?

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 17 July, 2012 - 12:20 PM
Prime Minister Julia Gillard is preaching Labor's message but is anyone listening in WA?

Last night's people's forum in Perth with Prime Minister Julia Gillard was meant to be a free flowing exchange of ideas but seems to have become a hard sell of the new carbon tax. Paul Murray spoke to the Prime Minister about the message she is pushing and questioned its effectiveness.

  • Oh goody, can't wait for us having to export billions of dollars to Carbon Traders for absolutely nothing in return. Carbon Tax, it should be called a Madness Tax! Tony Abbott's policy is to spend $10 billion and no more, here in Australia to improve OUR lives not some faceless vested interests or UN fat cats.

  • Thank you, Mr. Murray, brilliant interview.
    Should be more of it from our journalists.

  • If bill shorten wasn't related to the govener general she would be gone by now how much longer do we have to put up with her lies if I told lies like that I would be prosecuted .

  • I am flabbergasted by the responses to Paul Murray's questions by our Prime Minister. So, when the Carbon Price goes up to $25.40 in 2014-15, the compensation payments go up. However, when the ETS comes in and the price goes down to $15.00 what is the amount of compensation or bribes to us the taxpayers? What a disgrace, what a sham.

  • She knows the science behind this is looney tuney quackery, modelled using select inputs to get a desired result. Yet she needs the Greens to govern, so she will go along with it. Which means, now having set the wheels in motion, she also needs to keep the vested interests who will make billions from the new carbon industry onside, for the future good of the party.

  • "There will be no Carbon Tax under the government I lead!" - Julia Gillard

    Pfffft yeah right calling it a carbon pricing scheme doesn't make it any different. An egg is still an egg even if you call it a feather. She really doesn't like being pushed to answer a question and really likes to try and confuse everyone into believing that this TAX will reduce pollution and that this TAX is needed! Pathetic!! I can't wait to vote this joke of a government out. I feel so embarrassed to be an Australian at this point in time with this stupid government in power.
