Wong defends GG's comments on climate change
Governor-General Quentin Bryce had every right to enter the climate change debate, despite her role typically calling for a more apolitical approach, Climate Change Minister Penny Wong says (source).
OK then. Here's a little poser for you... what do you think Penny Wong would have said if the GG had come out as an AGW sceptic? Can you imagine Penny saying that the GG has every right to participate in the debate? It would be outrage on all sides, "shouldn't meddle in politics", not her place, inappropriate for representative of the Queen to get involved, harumph harumph...
As usual, double standards rule in the climate change debate.
