‘Thousands of demonstrators will gather in front of Parliament House tomorrow and next week scores of trucks will blockade the building as the Government faces a season of protests over its carbon pricing scheme. Tomorrow’s Election Now No Carbon Tax Rally is expected to be bigger than the March protest which Opposition Leader Tony Abbott addressed in front of signs attacking “Bob Brown’s Bitch”, Prime Minister Julia Gillard. Organisers want to command a fleet of buses carrying protesters from 13 Sydney suburbs, the New South Wales central coast, the Southern Highlands and Melbourne.’
Get the picture? First the hype then the action. These topics are what the next government are really going to be dealing with. Forget the dog mess on your pavement. Your MHK may be able to help you with that – but what about the major issues? Are they up to it? Can they smell a con? Will they sell us out to the UK as usual? That’s what we need to know.
