Gillard goes where angels fear to tread!

History says that the 10 billion dollar green boondoggle set up by Gillard to finance uneconomic green energy projects is headed for disaster as "clean" energy company stocks hit an all-time low worldwide as indicated by the Renewable Energy Industrial Index  which has lost 90% of it's value since 2008. The market is littered with bankrupt or near-bankrupt green energy companies and Canberra is planning to add a few more with their demonstrated financial incompetence and ten billion of borrowed cash to spread around.

The Hockey Schtick has the story:
