Our Federal Election (Australia) is on May 18th 2019. Never have I been so positively alarmed at the prospect of a particular party winning government.
You see, I have been looking at Labor's 'climate change' policies. If they win the election, they plan a 45% Renewables target for a start, with the accompanying rise in electricity bills and decrease in reliabilty that South Australia has so well demonstrated.
But also, Shorten wants 50% of cars to be electric by 2010. Now electric cars are expensive, they don't actually save any 'emissions' when manufacture is taken into account, and while they may be okay for a city commute, they are quite unsuitable for country driving.
This 'policy' may not be quite as bad the 'Green New Deal' that got the kybosh in America, but it is not far off.
I find the idea of Labor gaining control in Australia quite alarming.
People, have some sense. Even if you have voted Labor all your life, have a look at them now. They are no longer the Labor that was for working people. Now they are the sort of impractical activists that live in the more plush suburbs of a big city.
So please. the Coalition may be somewhat rotten, but they are still a lot better than the alternative.
