Picture: It's not just the ex Coalition Govt leadership who are laughable when it comes to ecological credibility. When it comes to the environment under the wall to wall ALP govts it's going to be beggars all for the 'peak' green groups which is merely humiliating, but a slaughter house for the actual environment. That's the age old patronage system of the highly corrupt ALP in Australia, road tested mercilessly in NSW, the foundation stone of corrupt govt. Remember when Iemma was elected earlier in 2007 and in his election speech pronounced his was "a good government". And these guys are living in which universe?
The feeling of dread has begun. Howard steps forward to welcome and shake Kevin's hand at the disused Lodge on the vision last night. Similarly the email arrives from Bega;
Martin Ferguson is the new Minister for Resources, Energy and Tourism in the Rudd Government. This is a real worry. He is the politician who hates greenies and wants to burn 5million tonnes of native forest a year and call it "renewable."

Where is the true Opposition in a wall to wall ALP reality, not that we were impressed with those poorly reproduced Coalition scare adverts totally unsuitable for newsprint hardly revealing the brickwork metaphor.
Well the real Opposition is the community media, maybe the Big Media and certainly the Green party from a low base of maybe 10% public support.
Yes sir, the unrestrained ALP is a real worry. They have their Kyoto Treaty figleaf and decimated Garrett 'Environment Minister' Portfolio and not much else:
It's an anti ecology, brown and vandalistic ALP full of sleaze terms like "clean coal" and "bio banking" which means destruction of half not all of the 10% left after 200 years. All PR consultants' dirty work for the Dark Side woven in with expanded uranium mining, land clearing and chipping,
These people are professional liars, who sound good but mean and do great harm.
Take Minister Penny Wong replacing threadbare brand Garrett post election in the Portfolio Water and Climate Change. We recently responded to Simon Benson of the Sydney Daily Telegraph about this:

Sure, sure SB and "there is no doubt" you are THE Tele messenger on the drip from Ruddmeister aka Bonhoffer.Wong is a redneck out of Kim Yeadon's NSW Forest ministry, pro woodchip, CFMEU operation.Smooth talker and as jaded a rherotician as you will ever find in Big Politics.All style no ecological heart.People forget too Big John ie Faulkner was done over by Keating and the chippers in 1995-6 when the former was Environment Minister. People like Wong at state level probably. Keating latter lamented he wished he'd done more on the green stuff - too late d*ckhead.And here's a chestnut - no chipping industry in Kev's hallowed Qld. But happy to inflict this criminal sector on Tas, NSW, Vic, WA. Pretty inconsistent that. Stephen Biddulph got it right yesterday - it's the ecology stupid.

Are you serious mate? You don't really expect me to post that ridiculous comment do you? Get a grip mate. I might have to report you to the mental health authorities if you keep that up.

TomI would have thought your pretensions to high ethics prevented you from making such assumptions without veryifing the rumours first. But I can save you the trouble. They are not true. You have just indulged in the very crime you accuse others ofregards
