From ABC News:
Clive Palmer has announced that his party will vote in the Senate to abolish the carbon tax but will demand legislative changes in a bid to lock in falling power prices.
The Fairfax MP and leader of the Palmer United Party is also planning to propose an emissions trading scheme to tackle climate change – similar to the one proposed by the Labor Party.
Axing the carbon tax was the major campaign platform and election promise for Prime Minister Tony Abbott during last year’s election.
Mr Palmer, whose party will hold three balance of power seats in the Senate from next Tuesday, was flanked by climate change campaigner and former US vice-president Al Gore when he made the announcement.
A PUP source told the ABC the party is confident his ETS proposal will be passed by the Senate, which would require support from the Labor Party.
But it will also have to pass the House of Representatives – where the Coalition has the majority – to become law.
Mr Palmer is set to also reveal that his party will demand the Renewable Energy Target and the Clean Energy Finance Corporation are also retained.
As the largest voting bloc on the new micro-party cross bench, PUP will hold the balance of power when the Senate changes over next Tuesday.
Its power has been boosted by an agreement with Victoria’s Motoring Enthusiast Party Senator Ricky Muir.
Mr Palmer, the soon-to-be Senate kingpin, is also due to hold his first face-to-face meeting with Mr Abbott over breakfast on Thursday morning.
It will be the first time the two have met since they fell out at a Liberal Party national conference in 2012.
Essentially, what this article shows is if you don’t like what one side of the Jew democratic system (Labor) does, then the other side (Liberal) will be ready to offer you the same thing dressed up as something different (it’s either Carbon Tax or ETS. Bullshit or bullshit? It’s so hard to choose).
Either way, it is always you, the general public that gets fucked over. In this case, big fat Clive Palmer, as the head of the relatively small Palmer United Party is only willing to act as all “third parties” do – I.e. compromise and pick one of the “big twos” policy’s to go with.
Two party system? Forget it. Waste of time. Third or fourth minor parties? Forget it. All they’ll do is pander to the two main Jew-controlled parties at the top.
Is it any wonder Jews love democracy?
As for “falling power prices”??? What the hell? That’s a laugh.
