McGauran will cross floor on ETS vote

From The Australian:
LIBERAL backbencher Julian McGauran has become the latest coalition MP to defy Opposition Leader Malcolm Turnbull, saying he will not support an emissions trading scheme under any circumstance.

On a day when Mr Turnbull argued unity was vital for the Liberals on the issue of climate change, Senator McGauran joined a growing chorus of unhappy Liberals.

He confirmed he would cross the floor and vote against an emissions trading scheme, with or without amendments.

"I will not be supporting the bill under any circumstances, and I've made that clear to my leader," he told ABC Television.

"And I think there'll be more than just one senator doing it."

He was the latest Liberal to publicly defy Mr Turnbull, joining party colleagues Wilson Tuckey, Mitch Fifield, Cory Bernardi and Mathias Cormann.

Senator McGauran also sent a word of warning to his leader, urging him to listen to dissenters.

"Any leader that blindly disregards the greater majority of the party room invites trouble, so this is all in Malcolm's hands," he said.

Indeed it is.

  • The Insipid One is getting his right whack.

    Let's see the other realists follow McGuaran's example to expedite the removal of the latte sipper and let's get some spine back into the opposition !
