Australia commits suicide | James Delingpole

October 13, 2011

What’s that you say, Skip? They’ve all topped themselves?

One of the worst aspects of living in these apocalyptic times is that whenever you look around the world, wondering where you might escape to, you begin to realise that everywhere else is just as bad if not worse.

Take Australia, an island built on fossil fuel with an economy dependent on fossil fuel. What would be the maddest economic policy a place like that could pursue as the world tips deeper into recession? Why, to introduce a carbon tax, of course. Which, for reasons just explained above, means a tax on absobloodylutely everything. Which is exactly what Julia Gillard’s Coalition (why is it that word always makes me want to reach for my Browning?) has just gone and done, obviously.

What must be particularly galling to all the…

This in much as I’d expect from you, you can’t get it right on climate change, God, you can’t even git it right about politicians in another country.
    1. Anonymous says:14th October 2011 at 3:36 amLast time I checked, Gillard’s government was a coalition between Labour, Greens, and a handful of independents.

      Or perhaps you have a different collective noun for such a grouping – say a “pack of morons”.

    2. Wilbur says:14th October 2011 at 4:47 amJames is correct in this case. Aussie Labour and the Greens were also being referred to as a “coalition” as far back as August last year:

      Speaking from the U.K., James could be expected to refer to a grouping of red-green politicians as a “coalition”anyway. The term is so common in Europe it has a wikipedia page;
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red-green_alliance#Red-green_coalition_governments

      So yes, in Aussie terms, Tony Abott leads a coalition of Liberal /National MPs, but to use the term for Gillards government certainly is not unprecedented either.

  4. John Fourie says:20th October 2011 at 11:12 pmJust came to your website to say that you are the lowest form of life. Lying and over exaggerating without even understanding the basics. Dont read anything this man says people he only wants you to go to his website to get some click, he is what we call an internet troll and does not deserve a second of your time. Please die so that the world can be a better place.
