Hilarious! Penny Wong fails to name a single supporter of the ETS

That’s because there aren’t any, clearly:

Federal Climate Change Minister Penny Wong has been unable to name a single supporter of her government’s embattled Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).

This prompted the opposition to claim the scheme would “wander the corridors of Parliament looking in vain for a friend“.

Senator Wong struggled to answer a reporter in Sydney who asked her to name any supporter of the scheme outside her own party.

“This is a reform that was a commitment of the Rudd Labor government, made prior to our election,” was her response.

Too funny! Read it here.
