Carbon Pricing has only ever been the “LNPs Cry Wolf”. It’s not a tax you can choose not to pay it and its market driven. Calling it a tax is a fabrication. You can’t choose not to pay your taxes. OOPS! I got that wrong the rich can choose under the LNP rules. Especially Corporations. If we are making things up we can arbitrarily say LNP are taxing us with the “Cost of Living”. Or they’re taxing us with their downward pressure on Wages. Taxing us with Cheap imported Labor, Taxing us with the Casualisation of Jobs. Simply taxing us with their existense.
The Australian’s front page screams ‘’Labor carbon tax warning’’, citing comments by Whitehaven Coal chief executive Paul Flynn that Labor’s plan is a carbon levy by stealth. If only, some Labor supporters might say. Imagine a full-blooded response: ‘’Yes we damn well do plan a carbon tax. We had it before and we’ll have it again.’’
