Palmer challenges Carbon Tax

Billionaire businessman Clive Palmer has vowed to challenge the carbon tax

Billionaire businessman Clive Palmer has vowed to mount a challenge to the federal government's carbon tax in the high court. Paul Murray spoke to the Climate Change Minister, Greg Combet, who said Mr Palmer's efforts are just a side project.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Clive's form guide reads - 2 starts in the Supreme Court this season for 0 wins. He seems to have been barking (mad) up the wrong trees, of late.

  • I love the way Combet keeps referring to Europe as having a CT - yeah and how are they going??

    Ken Friday 16 March, 2012 - 12:35 PM
  • How does Greg Combet continuously get away with the claim that the rest of the world are implementing a carbon tax? We are not following, we are leading.

    Why is this never challenged by interviewers? (Paul Murray - you came very close.)

    The only good thing about this tax is that it kicks in this in the middle of this year and the voters get 12 months to see what the real costs are before the next election.

  • Well done Mr Palmer! Challenge this scam tax for all it is worth! A tax from a lousy government with insane policies that will run this country into the ground. The nerve of Combet, to tell Clive Palmer how to spend his money when this Government thinks nothing of wasting billions of dollars of our money on Pink Batts, NBN, $600 Set Top boxes, Non-border protection and taxing fresh air! Who will be the next on their McCarthy style hit-list of enemies? Apparently, anyone who doesn't agree with the madness is fair game.
