Million dollar fines for political posters! Book-burning next!

Carbon tax flyer
Non-Approved Political Poster


In a jack-booted approach to silencing criticism of the carbon tax Labor has threatened businesses with million dollar fines for saying that the carbon tax will increase prices ,a fact which is obvious to anyone who is not brain-dead . This is political censorship of the worst kind by a government terrified of  the electoral effects of this stupid tax. Threatening small business in this way is a sure way to alienate them and their customers .
LABOR has warned small businesses they risk a $1.1 million fine if they display misleading carbon tax flyers distributed by the Coalition.
Tony Abbott and his small business spokesman Bruce Billson last week sent letters to thousands of business owners across the nation claiming they would “all pay more” because of Labor's carbon tax, to start next week.
Along with the letter sent to butchers, bakers, bottle shops, cafes, dry cleaners and other small businesses was an accompanying flyer which shop owners were encouraged to display in their windows, informing customers price increases would be inevitable as a result of carbon pricing.
“We always strive to keep our prices at reasonable levels but because the carbon tax will make electricity prices more expensive, our prices will increase,” one flyer for a butcher shop read.
The letter from Mr Abbott and Mr Billson read: “If you want to join the campaign against this toxic tax, we urge you to place a copy of the attached flyer on display for your customers.”
“(The carbon tax) is a bad tax and we will fight it every day.”
Assistant Treasurer David Bradbury said Mr Abbott was putting small businesses in the “firing line” for potential fines from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
“If businesses make false carbon price claims they run the risk of breaching the Competition and Consumer Act and could be exposed to a $1.1 million fine for misleading consumers,” Mr Bradbury said.

  1. I think every single one of them should post that flyer.

  2. I'm thinking of a spoof poster, along the strapline "Prices may change due to the Fairy Tax" and featuring a grotesque caricature of a red headed Tinkerbell with a bigger behind and a nose borrowed from Pinocchio. Let them try to take that shop owner to court.

    I totally agree with both of the previous posters. The Tinkerbell idea is great but in the meantime I'm seriously thinking of buying a "No Carbon Tax / Global warming has become a new religion." T shirt from the No Carbon Tax website at http://tinyurl.com/87os6rq

  4. Simply unbelievable.

    To deny the carbon tax will have an impact on prices is the modern equivalent of the 'Flat Earth' beliefs of old, when it was considered heresy to think the earth might in fact be round.

    It is called a 'Carbon Tax' because it is a 'Tax' and that is all that need be said. Scour the history books for as long as you like and you will never find a tax that has reduced prices.

    If you doubt what I say, just look up the definition of the word 'TAX' in the Oxford Dictionary which includes the words:

    '...but got from the consumer in increased prices'

  5. This AGW is the biggest lie of the century! The 2nd biggest lie was about man's effect on the ozone layer. We don't hear about the ozone layer any more do we? Wow, we must have fixed it!
