It was great to see all the wealthy people and royalty go to Glasgow to make sure their interests are protected under the cover of climate change and show no concern about the environmental damage.
The only difference now between the two major parties is the spelling as they both go for increase in taxes using different mandates.
The worker and small business people will be the ones to carry the burden, while the wealthy sit back and bask in the sun while continuing to have their lifestyle subsided.
IN OTHER NEWS:
To show leadership all federal politicians and Commonwealth cars will be electric by the end of 2022, with no exceptions.
Think we might see an outcry, but it is good policy we are told.
We need more information on this so-called emerging hydrogen industry.
Hydrogen is more explosive than traditional fossil fuels and added care will be essential.
What impact on the environment will this hydrogen industry have on the millions of hectares of farming land to produce the solar power?
After 25 to 30 years, what will happen to all these used solar cells and land degradation after having all their natural trees and vegetation destroyed?
Just remember the pollies making policy at the moment will have died or still enjoying their Parliament superannuation, along with all the other perks, in 2050.
I have to say with respect I disagree with your editorial on Thursday.
Your support for the idea of the federal government reducing or subsidising the price of electric cars is the equivalent of middle-class welfare.
The country can't afford the government paying part of the costs for motor vehicles for middle- and high-income people. People on middle and high incomes can afford to buy their own electric cars.
MORE LETTERS TO THE EDITOR:
In addition, your inference "that the Coalition government sent the local industry packing" is factually incorrect.
At the time the Australian motor vehicle industry was making cars that the Australian market did not want to buy.
The number of Australian-made vehicles being sold each year were thousands less than the Australian-made cars that were sold each year 20 years before.
People wanted to buy imported cars like Toyotas, Mazdas and Hyundais, not Australian-made cars.
Market forces caused the demise of the Australian car industry, not the Coalition.
Since the first Lions Christmas cake came out of the oven in 1965, Lions clubs have raised more than $65 million to provide assistance to those in need within their communities and to support many charities including Lions Childhood Cancer Research Foundation, Spinal Cord Research, Australian Lions Mobility Foundation and Emergency Accommodations Centres.
Lions are immensely proud that 100 per cent of all fundraising goes directly back to the community.
In this trying time with COVID-19 affecting the entire country, your support is even more urgently needed to bring the message that Lions are still selling the fabulous Christmas cakes to raise money for the community in this time of need.
