Colin Espiner has an excellent summary of the folly which is Labour's flagship election plank, announced today. The Carbon Tax. (Follows the equally suicidal Smacking Ban, Fart Tax and Electoral Rorting bills.) The comments thread is amusing and instructive with outraged lefties vigorously defending their demented leader's latest political debacle.
The Gnats don't need to say a word. Except maybe - 'Don't worry, we'll carry out an urgent review of all recent legislation immediately after the election and repeal everything we feel is not in the interests of ordinary WORKING New Zealanders.
Hell. I'm yet to be convinced carbon emissions have anything to do with climate change in the first place.
