Quote of the Day: Julia Gillard

Quote of the Day

On her popularity improving after announcing a pointless, economy-wrecking carbon tax, in breach of an explicit pre-election promise not to, and which will do nothing for the climate, Julia opts for unintentionally comical understatement:

“We won’t see an instantaneous jump in support.”

Gee, ya think? More like a continuing terminal slide into oblivion… with a bit of luck.

Read it here.


  1. Mervyn Sullivan says:

    Well may Julia Gillard implement her carbon dioxide tax…

    …but you know what… come the next election, we may well see the biggest defeat ever suffered by a Labor government.

    In fact, I’ll predict it will be a wipe out for Labor, the Greens and the Independents… punishment due to them inflicting so much pain on Australia … when there was no valid reason to do so!

  3. Baldrick says:

    … and poor old Juliar can’t even get channels 7 or 9 to take up her offer of an address to the nation on the carbon dioxide tax on Sunday –


    Bet the ALPBC will jump at it.

  4. Graham Richards says:

    I don’t think it was my imagination but the “tsunami” of pro tax propaganda on ABC this morning has started.
    It’s actually an insult to the intelligence of the Australian voters the way that these socialists think they can suddenly brainwash everone into voting for their own financial suicide.
    The Labour Party and its “hangers on” will be severly punished come the next election.

  5. The Loaded Dog says:

    “We won’t see an instantaneous jump in support.”

    It won’t happen overnight, but it will happen..

    sure Jooles, if they believe you more the fools them.

    Nothing but more disconnected leftoid dreaming…

  6. I wonder how long they will withstand flatlining polls before they yank the policy and ditch Gillard?

    I had an idea the other day. We should spread the plan that, if you get polled about this, to give glowing support to the tax and Julia. The moment Labor sees an uptick in the polls, they will run to an election. If a false signal could be given by a movement of people, they would take the bait and hand us the opportunity to get the election we all want. Then electoral justice could be served.

  7. yeah , i had a GOOD chuckle when i first heard that 😉
    it’s almost as if she thinks she’s gonna stay in whatever , talk about a captain going down with his sinking ship

    If you have not heard, read or seen the news – it seems that Carbon Dioxide AKA Carbon Pollution is suffocating our planet. We human beings are responsible. The Earth is warming up because of all the carbon pollution in the atmosphere, and if we do not pay a Carbon Tax, our planet will suffer severe damage, possibly even unto death. YUP I guess that is the long and short of the argument.

    How do I know all this? What makes me so darn clever?

    Well I am not all that clever, but I do read, I watch television, even listen to the radio when driving around in the car when we can afford the petrol. So I guess I just take it all in and believe it because both the IPCC and the Prime Ministers of Australia tell me so.
