And stay silent, Cate


Like I need a jet-setting Hollywood elitist to tell me to cut back on my relatively frugal existence. Fuck off, Cate.

CATE Blanchett may be the star of the pro-carbon tax advertising push, but she was silent yesterday in the face of a public backlash against the campaign, leaving a suburban mum on maternity leave to defend the environmental lobby’s media blitz.

The Hollywood actress, who urges people to “say yes” to a carbon tax in TV ads that began airing last night, did not return The Australian’s calls yesterday, with her minders citing “pre-existing commitments”.

Yep. That mansion she lives in ain’t gonna admire itself.

So well done to Julia for going ahead with her advertising blitzkrieg. What’s another few million dollars considering the billions of our hard-earned money she’s already thrown to the dogs?

Meanwhile, independent MP, Tony Windsor is trying to hedge his bets, possibly in some vain fantasy that he won’t be turfed out on his ear come the next election.

THE Greens have dismissed a business-endorsed $10 carbon price as “way too low”, as independent MP Tony Windsor warned against taxing carbon ahead of the rest of the world.

Too late, Tony. What a rat. He may receive some kudos however, if he votes against it in the parliament and thus effectively derails Gillard’s mad life-giving trace gas tax (hey look, a unicorn!).

And as for that brief mention of the Greens in that previous blurb, well, I’d tell Bob Brown to go suck it but the problem is he probably would.

UPDATE

PM Juliar somehow wants us to believe we are acting with the rest of the world. What utter garbage, as thefrollickingmole points out.

And BTW, nice decommissioned power station located in London, dickheads (nice updated version of that play school commercial there, too).

    Tony Windsor always plays this game, and then votes with Labor.

    • Isn’t he a fraud. Remember the coal mine on his property he sold? Windsor is about as eco-conscious as Ahmadinijad is a Jew sympathizer.

    Dreadful news just in- Mal Fraser & John Hewson ‘join pro-carbon tax campaign – along with 140 others’. Ugh!!

      Mal Fraser and John Hewson two very bitter men, [wonder if Fraser has found his pants yet], as for Hewson, he has never recovered from loosing the Ünlosable election”.
      Both seem to be the two men that the media go to for any remarks against their former party.

  1. Spot don’t say “Yes.” Spot say “FYYSFLTs.”

    I wrote of the tide turning about two years ago in both Boltas and Tim Blairs blogs. Since then I’ve repeated the message several times when others thought it was all over for sanity in the Western world. The pendulum has reached its highest point and is starting to pick up speed on its return swing.
    No one would want to be standing at the bottom of its arc when it gets there.
    This is going to be bloody – too many people have hitched their financial star to this scam for the fight not to be otherwise. All those cleverdicks who put solar tiles on their roofs must be realising how far away from a financial disaster they are if the government decides to change their contracts.
    The simmering resentment will boil over before Julias next election.

Surely you're thinking something...
