Gillard bought Greens' support with promise of "urgent climate action"


We all knew this already, but it’s good to hear Adam Bandt admit openly that Julia Gillard sacrificed her principles and her party and was happy to throw an explicit pre-election promise under a bus to buy the Greens support:

“They [Labor] did come to us and say they wanted our help in forming government and we said, OK, but as long as we take urgent action on climate change.

  1. The Loaded Dog says:

    Keep it up eco-fascists.

    You’ll be history soon enough…

    This and totalitarian media control?

    The stupid arrogance of these fools in astounding. They are cutting their own throats.

    • Let’s introduce a nationwide regulatory body to see that they cut their own throats humanely.

      • The Loaded Dog says:

        Yes, well they’ll certainly be “stunned” when they find out what the electorate really thinks of them.

  2. The ‘real loaded dog’ blew himself apart for getting hold of something he had no idea about; I trust that this is what LD wishes on AB for his rant (as originally defined) tending to lunacy the other day.

    • The Loaded Dog says:

      The ‘real loaded dog’ blew himself apart…

      Not quite, it was the “vicious yellow mongrel” (or more appropriately in this case the vicious “green” mongrel) that blew itself apart after the loaded dog dropped the stick of dynamite.

      But yes, there will be a horrible green mess when she blows…

  3. My suggestion for Mad Julia’s next campaign theme song:

    … and it’s 100% Australian content to boot!

    • Fiona Murray says:

      My suggestion would be The Police – Every Breath You Take (I’ll be TAXING YOU)

    • There are many songs which can be adapted for Julia, for example:

      It won’t be easy, you’ll think it strange
      When I try to explain how I feel
      that I still need your love after all that I’ve done
      You won’t believe me
      All you will see is a girl you once knew
      Although she’s dressed up to the nines
      At sixes and sevens with you

      I had to let it happen, though I couldn’t change
      Couldn’t stay all my life down at heel
      Looking out of the window,
      staying out of the sun

      So I chose power
      Running around, trying everything new
      But only the Greens impressed me at all
      I never expected them to


      Don’t cry for me in Australia
      The truth is I never left you
      All through my wild days
      My mad existence
      I wish I’d kept my promise
      Don’t keep your distance

      And as for fortune, and as for fame
      I never invited them in
      Though it seemed to the world they were all I desired
      They are illusions
      They are not the solutions they promised to be
      The answer was here all the time
      I love you and hope you love me

      Don’t cry for me in Australia

      Have I said too much?
      There’s nothing more I can think of to say to you.
      But all you have to do is look at me to know
      That every word is not true

  4. While we rightly nail Gillard for being the one to lie, the greens are equally culpable in misleading the Australian people.

    • Fiona Murray says:

      Except those of us who read the policy document already knew they were lunatics!

  5. Baldrick says:

    And who can forget Adam Bandts (member of the Left/Socialist Alliance) rant in 1995 when he said:
    “Supporting the Greens would perhaps be the most effective strategy at the
    next election. The Greens are in many ways bourgeois, but they have been
    able to exert influence over the Government’s agenda. They are all we have
    at the moment … . Let’s ditch this ‘third party’ stuff: communists can’t fetishise
    alternative political parties, but should always make some kind of
    materially based assesment about the effectiveness of any given strategy
    come election time.
    I’d be interested in getting some responses.
    Towards an anti-capitalist, anti-social democratic, internationalist movement,
    Adam Bandt”
