Now if only Julia would tell Bob Brown where to get off on his Carbon Dioxide Taxation Scheme I truly believe the Australian People would hold her in far greater esteem.
What we find though is she is telling him to nick off over wanting to turn the Island of Tasmania into a National Park. At least for once she is telling him who actually holds the key position (sadly) of Prime Minister for a short while..
Bob meanwhile is throwing a public tantrum and cancelling his monthly’s…. err his monthly scheduled meeting with Julia. Like as if she cares! As she said in the media today ‘he can come if he wants’ to’….. “I make myself available. Whether Senator Brown wants to take up that opportunity is entirely a matter for him. Ah well Julia looks like you get an hour or two, to yourself, enjoy!
Really folks, Bob is throwing a tantrum, and YES I do care about Old Growth Forests…… over a promise Julia has broken, according to him. Way back when, or rather when those two got all buddy buddy and fixed things so Julia could keep the top job, with Bob’s support, things in the forestry industry in Tasmania were not quite so dire.
Since then the situation has changed and Julia has had to make a few Prime Ministerial decisions. Obviously she made this one without consulting His Bobship and getting permission – ergo the tantrum.
I for one am pleased to see Bob showing his true watermelon colours for all and sundry to watch in public. It really does let one and all see just who he thinks he is!
However he above all should remember Julia cannot keep a promise, after all he supported her openly with her broken promises on the Carbon Dioxide Taxation Scheme, so why would he be so bothered now that she is changing her stance on logging in Old Growth Forests in Tasmania?
Now if only Julia would…… (fill in the blanks)………. Australia could regain its National Identity with pride. Might mean her resigning and taking His Bobship and a few dozen others with her, but so what…. geesh I reckon most of us would put up with that small (not) inconvenience.
