When will the Opposition finally say enough is enough? Here we have the playground bullies just taking the other kid’s sweets, when what the bully deserves is a smack. Penny Wong will have seen the credibility of the alarmist cause disappear up in smoke thanks to the CRU leaks [either that or she will be doing the “fingers-in-the-ears-and-shout-la-la-la” routine – Ed], and will be even more desperate to pass the legislation before people wise up:

The Federal Government will give the Opposition just two days to decide whether or not to vote for an amended emissions trading scheme.

Climate Change Minister Penny Wong says a deal on the scheme will be presented to the Opposition on Tuesday morning.

The Government wants a Senate vote on the scheme before Parliament adjourns for the year on Thursday night, but a bid last week to extend the sitting hours was rejected by all non-government senators.

Senator Wong has been negotiating amendments with the Opposition and she has told Channel Nine that the two are inching closer to a deal.

But every cloud has a silver lining. It dramatically increase the chance of a filibuster, so that this legislation can be sunk without the need for a vote.
