Fan-bloody-tastic!


Scomo wins!

I got drunk twice on Saturday night, firstly between 6 and 8pm when I was drowning my sorrows at the thought of a Shorten government, then secondly when I got home and realised the Coalition had pulled off the most amazing election turnaround in recent Australian history.

So I had a double hangover on Sunday, but boy was it worth it. Australia has once again escaped the grasp of Labor’s increasingly extreme Green/Left agenda, and most importantly has dodged the bullet of economy-wrecking “climate action”.

With Turnbull and all the other lefty bed-wetters (Pyne I’m looking at you) gone from the Coalition benches, there may be hopes of a genuine conservative government – low taxing, small footprint, pro-individual, pro-business etc etc – and with none of that mad climate action that readers of this blog know full well is POINTLESS.

Happy days!

Shorten’s latest ‘dumb’ climate response – “cost of inaction”


Brainless buffoon

On ABC last night, Bill Shorten last night called anyone questioning Labor’s climate policy “dumb”. Gee, that will no doubt go down well with voters, right deplorables?

His stock response to anyone with the audacity to want some kind of clear dollar figure is now to bleat about the “cost of inaction”.

This is the most idiotic response anyone could imagine – for the following very simple reason: The cost of inaction will not be offset by the cost of action.

Let me just explain that. Let’s say for the sake of argument, that in a particular year, this supposed “cost of inaction” (which I dispute even exists) is $10 billion.

Let’s say that the following year we decide to take $10 billion worth of “climate action”. Given Australia’s contribution to global emissions is 1.5%, this amount of money will do nothing to change the climate. So the total cost is just the cost of action plus the cost of inaction, i.e. $20 billion.Β 

So all we’ve done is wasted another $10 billion! Brilliant! Shorten economics on display.

Even if we shut down our economy, costing us our entire GDP of $1.3 trillion, the net climate cost would still be $1.3 trillion plus the $10 billion “cost of inaction”… BECAUSE IT WOULD MAKE NO FREAKING DIFFERENCE TO THE CLIMATE.

Whatever climate action Australia takes is still “inaction” on a global scale.

It’s you that is dumb, Bill. Dumb, dumb, dumb.
