Dear Comrades, I want to give you a brief reminder of Prime Minister Turnbull’s previous comments on climate change and the Liberal Party’s ‘Direct-Action’ policy to address climate change. He had previously said Direct Action was:
“a recipe for fiscal recklessness on a grand scale….In short, having the government pay for emissions abatement, as opposed to the polluting industries themselves, is a slippery slope which can only result in higher taxes and more costly and less effective abatement of emissions.”
He summed it up nicely in 2010:
“As Tony observed on one occasion “climate change is crap” or if you consider his mentor, Senator Minchin, the world is not warming, it’s cooling and the climate change issue is part of a vast left wing conspiracy to deindustrialise the world.
“Now politics is about conviction and a commitment to carry out those convictions. The Liberal Party is currently led by people whose conviction on climate change is that it is “crap” and you don’t need to do anything about it. Any policy that is announced will simply be a con, an environmental figleaf to cover a determination to do nothing.”
That’s enough from me because once again I’m in terrible pain. Tonight it feels like somebody is ripping my guts apart with a hot knife. It also feels like some mad Japanese Guard at Changi has shoved a glass-rod up the eye of my penis then shattered it with the butt of his rifle into my groin trying to get me to admit to something during a torture session. Yes I’m more or less pissing razor-blades but without the puss! It’s all referred nerve pain, yet they –surgeons- can’t tell me why and refuse to fix the problem. I’m at my wits end and am prepared to do whatever to fix it. I can’t continue taking opiates for the rest of my life, I’m already a “legal-Junkie” so to speak. More later. So if my writing tonight offends anybody, but this is my daily existence, so suck it up!
