Delusional Gillard compares carbon tax with the Snowy Mountain Scheme!
Julia Gillard ,showing delusions of grandeur, is comparing her pathetic lied-about carbon tax to the monumental feat of engineering which was the Snowy Mountain scheme . The irony of it all is that the Snowy Scheme with it's 16 interconnected dams could never be built by Gillard's visionless bunch of incompetents as Labor has not approved a dam in decades . The good news is that the carbon tax will be thrown out in a year and the Snowy scheme which has had over 60 years of operation will still be going strong.
The Snowy is one of the great nation-building achievements of the twentieth century in Australia.
It’s become an icon of one of our greatest periods of shared national purpose and achievement and surely our most beloved renewable energy project.
But when Chifley was putting the Snowy bills through Parliament, the then Opposition Leader Menzies quibbled and wavered and found excuses to raise questions.
He was too sophisticated a figure for an aggressively negative campaign of the kind we see from the modern Liberal Party – but my conclusion from the record is that had Menzies been Prime Minister by then, he would have proposed a very different Snowy Scheme, if he’d proposed one at all.
Julia Gillard, you are no Ben Chifley and he would turn in his grave to see what you have done to his beloved Labor Party.
