Re: Australian Trade Minister Craig Emerson sings a crappy song when asked a question about carbon tax
"The trade minister began boogieing to the backing of the Skyhooks number at a doorstop press conference in Canberra before singing 'no Whyalla wipeout, there on my TV'.

Comments on the micbroblogging site range from 'what an idiot', 'Someone should tell Craig Emerson The Voice is over', 'Seriously, what was Craig Emerson thinking!?' to 'I thought it was one of the funniest things I've seen in ages!'"

 Quoting: HubNuts


Why? Most people don't want a carbon tax. It is being forced on people.


"THE Gillard government has its back against the wall as it implements the carbon price, with the latest poll showing Labor deeply unpopular and support for its policy at its lowest level since it was announced.

As Julia Gillard and Tony Abbott launched de facto election campaigns yesterday to mark the introduction of the carbon tax, the poll found support for the policy had fallen 4 percentage points in a month to 33 per cent, the lowest level since it was announced 15 months ago.

Two out of three Australians don't want a carbon tax. Will Julia Gillard and her Green and Labor mates listen????

Re: Australian Trade Minister Craig Emerson sings a crappy song when asked a question about carbon tax
This video has Dr Emerson actually answering questions:

[link to www.youtube.com]



He says the carbon tax will be 70 cents in every $100, so 0.7%. He says it will cost a household around $9.90 per week, with "substantial compensation" of $10.10 per week.

GEE I WONDER WHAT I'M GOING TO SPEND THAT EXTRA TWENTY CENTS PER WEEK ON!!!!!

Also, if the tax is going to be so incredibly small that people will hardly notice it, how is it going to stop global warming???? What is the POINT of taxing everybody an extra $9.90 per week, giving them an extra $10.10 per week? Unless it actually stops global warming, it is a COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME!!!
