Coalition sidelined, fossil outrage as Labor strikes deal on Energy Relief bill with Greens – Michael West

Energy Price Relief Plan, Anthony Albanese, Adam Bandt

We seem to have forgotten what Labor was once and did bravely and with courage under Gough Whitlam. Whitlam changed whole systems, patterns of behaviours, and institutions under which we habitually and intergenerationally operated. He didn’t just adjust them making the nation a fairer place. Albanese isn’t a Gough.

The government has ended the year on a high note however the clear message from the Greens and cross-benchers is that there are strong calls for them to go far further. Australians want a windfall profits tax, they want an end to Australia’s gas cartel and they want to improve transparency around how their government makes decisions.
