Come on, lets run a few clichés for Bob
Old eco-warriers never die – they just fade away.
Quit while you’re ahead.
Rats deserting a sinking ship.
You don’t need a Weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing.
The writing is on the wall.
Actually, Aussie Leftists were recently decimated at two (of 6) state elections – the recent one in Queensland all but wiped them out there. While they cannot suddenly volte-face or “flip-flop” on the “price on carbon”, it is no longer the flavour of the month, is no longer being actively pedalled, even by the Greens, and is in fact now a vexation to most voters simply because it has no point to it anymore.
Labor – the ALP – will lose the next federal election – they are just going through the motions and lining up their new careers. The Liberal Party will repeal the Carbon Tax and Tony Abbott will consolidate his power by dropping “Climate” and the Warmists in the Party.
One final adieu cliché for Bob Brown’s success – old chinese proverb – “be careful what you wish for Robert – it may come true!”
“You got to know when to hold ‘em,
know when to fold ‘em
Know when to walk away
and know when to run
You never count your money when you’re sittin’ at the table
There’ll be time enough for countin’ when the dealing’s done”
– Kenny Rogers “The Gambler”
