Government uses dirty tricks to try to force through ETS

We've had emotional blackmail from Penny Wong, and now political shenanigans in order to force through the pointless, and almost universally loathed, ETS. The government is in hot water for trying to link another piece of legislation to the ETS to get it through by the back door.
The Coalition's environment spokesman, Greg Hunt, says the Government is jeopardising a deal on renewable energy to score political points.

"We want to do the right thing. We are extremely sympathetic on renewable energy legislation. It would be a disgrace if this Government held up renewable energy projects for naked political gamesmanship," Mr Hunt said.

Greens Senator Christine Milne says the Government is resorting to trickery to get its emissions trading scheme through.

"They are now sinking to low levels in order to wedge the Coalition on climate change policy, saying they have to pass both the renewable energy target and the CPRS or neither, because they have interlinked the two policy positions," Senator Milne said.

ACM agrees with Christine Milne for the first (and probably the last) time.

    Careful, Simon - you are showing the early symptoms of Stockholm Syndrome. It starts off by sympathising with a viewpoint of criminally dangerous terrorist nutters, and before you know it, you are taking up arms on their behalf.
