Near my house there are two large plastic signs telling me I should Vote Greens - which someone has thoughtfully nailed to a couple of trees. The trees were not available for comment at time of publication.
Don't miss their 40-point plan for new and increased taxes. including a 33% surcharge (on top of the current top marginal rate of around 50%) for people-who-earn-more-than-is-good-for-them. And the plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by - wait for it - 100%. Which means that all those cuddly animals will have to go - after all, we can't have them breathing, now can we?
I've touched on Bob Brown's insane policies before. This is what Slatts has to say:
They are political extremists whose policies borrow equally from the textbooks of Hitler and Stalin.* Okay: Green on the outside and red on the inside.**
Of course, Australians are too sensible to put up with totalitarianism and should the Greens achieve any measure of power it would be short-lived.
But remember Whitlam. Much damage can be achieved in a short time by ideologues and their useful idiots.
** And I won't mention that the leader of the Australian Greens is Bob Brown.
