Why do we have to depend on Rightists for Climate scepticism?
The Queensland win was despite “saving-da-planet”, not because of it.
“Climate” hardly rated a mention – it is a dead issue with voters.
There are a lot of theories why they are in trouble of course but I see two main reasons, one is that Tony Abbott doesn’t know how to be Prime Minister – he didn’t consolidate their position. He became overwhelmed by his own importance.
The other reason is that both conservative Governments tried to pull the old Its-worse-than-we-thought-we-now-need-savage-cuts routine. (well, if you didn’t know the true fiscal position you should have known and should not have made promises!)
