New/Old/Fake/Tough/Teary/Steely-eyed Julia to Stop Rip-Offs!

Julia to stop rip-offs by Aussie companies - the  Labor Government does not want competitors in the rip-off industry.
The tough ( really just a home-town girl) Julia is making "no apologies" for the sweeping powers the Green Gestapo will have in policing the unpopular carbon tax!


JULIA Gillard has launched a passionate defence of the government's planned regulatory regime for the carbon tax, saying she makes "no apology for having tough powers to stop any rip-offs".
After The Australian reported yesterday that the Clean Energy Regulator would be given sweeping powers to enter company premises, compel people to give self-incriminating evidence and copy sensitive records, Tony Abbott attacked it as "draconian".
The Prime Minister defended the regime. "I don't want to see Australian families ripped off and so we will have a tough cop on the beat, with tough powers to go after any businesses that are thinking of ripping people off," Ms Gillard said.
Fraud or attempts to thwart the scheme can be punished by up to 10 years in jail or fines of up to $1.1 million for corporations.

  1. This is a most interesting change in the laws of Australia. Now we can be fined or jailed for 'thwarting' a scheme that is perpetrated on proven Government lies and deceit. Sounds more like a communist edict to me!

  2. Totalitarianism (or totalitarian rule) is a political system where the state recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible.[1] Totalitarian regimes stay in political power through an all-encompassing propaganda disseminated through the state-controlled mass media, a single party that is often marked by personality cultism, control over the economy, regulation and restriction of speech, mass surveillance, and widespread use of terror.

  3. Talk about hypocrisy!
    Didn't Julia Gillard commit fraud when she broke her promise of "No Carbon Tax"?
    How many voters were defrauded when they voted for her?

    What about a "Lying Politicians' Gestapo" to hold them to account?
