On the heels of the exploding and expanding reach of fudged climate data. James Delingpole reports on the stunning resignations of 5 Australian MPs in protest over Australia’s version of Cap & Steal called Emission Trading Scheme (ETS). Heh, at least the Aussies had the intestinal fortitude to label it a scheme.
ABC news reports that five frontbenchers from Australia’s opposition Liberal party have resigned their portfolios rather than follow their leader Malcolm Turnbull in voting with Kevin Rudd’s Government on a new Emissions Trading Scheme.
The Liberal Party is in turmoil with the resignations of five frontbenchers from their portfolios this afternoon in protest against the emissions trading scheme.
Tony Abbott, Sophie Mirabella, Tony Smith and Senators Nick Minchin and Eric Abetz have all quit their portfolios because they cannot vote for the legislation.
Senate whip Stephen Parry has also relinquished his position.
Like Cap & Steal, this scheme from Down Under will cause severe damage to the industrial and mining businesses in order to save the unwashed masses from rampaging anthropogenic global warming
I applaud their courageous and principled stand against environazi bullying.
