The Mad Monk’s New Clear Daze

5 12 2009

The Page 9 headline said it clearly enough Coalition’s Nuclear Play to Inflate Power Bills. (SMH 4/12/09)

Obviously the Mad Monk AKA Tony Abbott – the new Liberal Party leader – earned his nick-name for a reason. What do you think?

“In a dramatic departure from policy, the Opposition Leader Tony Abbot has abandoned support for any market-based mechanism, such as an ETS or a carbon tax, as part of the Coalition’s greenhouse strategy. The Coalition will release a policy claiming that . . .blah, blah, blah, blah,blah  . . .will help it meet it’s target of a 5 percent reducation by 2020. It is also openly advocating nuclear power as a key to the Coalition’s greenhouse strategy”

Oh kayyyyy. Note: clearly advocating nuclear power. This is Australia remember. Ohhhhhh. (the head is waggling and a vague, silly, cretinous look is dancing on face) Forget about wind, wave, solar power or the power of clear headed thinking. The Libs are going nuclear. Very reassuring . . . .NOT!

Dr Quantum feels it only appropriate at this point if we could offer the Mad Monk the same advice you would give to someone in the blast zone of a nulcear bomb. Assume the crouching position. Put your head between your legs. Kiss your arse goodbye.  And perhaps you could ask Malcolm to come back in before you leave?

Nicely put Dr. Q.
As depressing as Tony’s views are (and the consciousness he represents), i somehow trust that there may be a sparkle of silver lining around the clouds yet. I truly hope the Australian public will absolutely not tolerate Nuclear power. That’s for sure. I do see those in line with Tony Abbot and his ultra pleasant, reasonable, and justified conservatism to be a dying breed.
Wake up or get out of the way.

Nicely put Dr. Q although the Mad Monk did save us all from what seemed to be a carousel of taxes that probably would produce votes rather than clean air.
