You shoud Start with News Corp and the hundreds of thousands of dollars of free Liberal bias advertising. I though there was a limit of dollars of donations to political parties, seems the Libs always get around that.
Do you intend to keep whinging until the next election?

Independently of anything to be found in the media I'm on record here as expressing my grave mistrust of all the political parties. I've voted accordingly.
So anyone's aspersions about "Murdoch influence" do not even belong in the same hemisphere as me.:)
I respect that avenue more than those who voted on the say so of the media monopoly, too bad there weren't more like you!:)

He isn't even PM yet and your b1tching. Parliament resumes in October how about you have the common sense to wait until then at least & see what happens.

And the 6 Independent/minority party senators starting July 1 2014 are all opposed to the CT.

It started before you went to the polls and voted in someone who had failed to cost 3 of the policies which they used to get them in....I already have enough fuel on you noongs and that idiot Abbott, and you reckon Rudd was arrogant..no one is as arrogant as the Liberals...they trusted you morons would remain clueless and would still vote for them...how good were they and how brainless are their voters?....Who the feck votes for a party not knowing what their costings are?...and some of those the Libs gave for costing required more than "one line of information"...you voted for a party that has already let you down...how stupid do you have to be to be a Lib voter!

Did you forget that Abbott said he would introduce the legislature in the first 100 days and that my dumb friend means a Labor/ Green majority so he will fail...and he said if it fails he will go back to the people....Labor will not budge on this and nor will the Greens so... will Abbott keep his word and deliver on this promise in the first 100 days? or will he run scared of the peoples opinion and delay it till the change over????

On Q&A last night Graham Richardson said that Labor would never budge on this item and Abbott could be forced to a double dissolution. He was of the view that for his own sake Abbott should delay until the new Senate is installed.

The Greens have wishbones not backbones.
Did you see the Greens vote? Do you think Milne will allow Abbott to go back to the polls before xmas? She will worm a deal on something else, no expansion of Abbott point to save the Reef, because she knows come July next year the CT & MRRT are dead.

Ironical you're concerned for peoples opinions. We the people don't want the CT. We were lied to for it to be introduced. There has never been a poll showing Australians in favour of it. There's the peoples opinions.

Its ironic....people overwhelmingly have deep environmental concerns. Those concerns are quickly shoved aside when confronted by the possibility of real economic hardship.....but the economic hardship touted by Libs/media for the last 3 years was an obvious fabrication for political reasons as the hard facts prove......the same way "climate change" has been used to distract people from focusing on destructive and ongoing environmental practices happening around the world...."the environment" as an issue , will become prominent again . Hopefully , this issue will be viewed with a great deal more commonsense and respect , rather than the media and the industrialist lobbies just showing endless pictorials of dreadlock-haired moronic tree-huggers carrying on like dipshits , to marginalise an issue that will only become more urgent , the longer it's swept under the carpet for the benefit of the unsustainable status quo and their beloved share prices....Abbott needs to confront this. He's already started fudging the issue , and CSG , the Galillee Basin , The Great Barrier Reef and the Murry Darling River System look like paying the price. There are far more important things in Australia's national interest , that basic economic rationalism and a budget surplus.

No but it doesn't change to fact that neither will allow it through....people who voted for Labor new they had a (not a ct by the way an et) floating carbon price and those that voted for the Greens new the same....they have the balance of power till July next years...so keep whistling dixie....100 days Abbott said, seeing you set so much store in the lies that got him in...and he he won't get it, so will he risk it? I doubt he has the guts.

The emissions trading scheme which was to come into effect next year , will begin showing benefits as the economies of Europe stabilize and begin to grow again. It's already started. The more the global ETS is used within growing and regenerating economies , the more obvious it will become that the Abbott government "election proposal" for direct action, is far too inadequate to keep Australia in a competitive position in world export markets. This policy if not changed or abandoned alltogether , would eventually exclude Australia from a large part of global trade markets.....and trying to comply and catch up to the world from square one , will be a very very expensive and debilitating exercise.

"I am announcing today the termination of the carbon tax" ..... "environmental programs funded by the carbon tax are being scaled back, and new savings measures are being imposed on the public service". "The Government has decided to terminate the carbon tax to help cost-of-living pressures for families and to reduce costs for small business." 16th July 2013 .... Kevin Rudd in Townsville.

So does KRudd & the ALP stand by their promise to us, the Australian people? Or not?

The Greens I hear have already changed their opposition to LNP's PPL scheme. What did I say about them having wishbones & not backbones.

“The price isn’t the important thing from the environment’s point of view. The environment just wants to know there is less carbon pollution being spewed into the atmosphere,” Mark Butler - ALP Climate Change Minister. 16th July.

Another ALP member who'd have no qualms abolishing the CT. Or just another ALP liar?
