Lets unite on affordable and reliable power

We are told that “Electricity Bill” Shorten has written to Scott Morrison calling for a bipartisan approach to immigration and cognate matters. The headline in The Weekend Australian reads Lets unite on migrants.

What if we had PM who was not a catspaw for Labor-Lite Malcolmm Turnbull so he could write to Bill Shorten and suggest that we unite on affordable and reliable power by ignoring the Paris farce and reversing the trend to unreliable energy.

Meanwhile in the real world Wind and Other are delivering barely 5% of a very low demand for power.

    Why must we de-electrify?.

    “”In order to oust the kulaks as a class, the resistance of this class must be smashed in open battle and it must be deprived of the productive sources of its existence and development (free use of land, instruments of production, land-renting, right to hire labour, etc.).That is a turn towards the policy of eliminating the kulaks as a class. Without it, talk about ousting the kulaks as a class is empty prattle, acceptable and profitable only to the Right deviators.”

    Deprive the exploiter class of access to the productive sources of its existence and development.

    Sounds pretty straightforward.

    Comrades.

    Like who? Howard? The PM responsible for this mess in the first place. Why is Turnbull in anyone’s sights for this?
    The whole issue with “affordable and reliable power” is that everyone has been united on it since the 90’s when the Coalition first decided to make Australia’s energy both unaffordable and unreliable in unity with Labor and the Greens.
    What we really need is less agreement and an actual alternative to the far-left, green policies of every major party in politics today.
    That’s what’s actually missing.

    Howard set up the system that saw Peter Spencer shafted.

    I get very sick of seeing this sort of b/s.

    The One Party state bipartisan position on migration is that turnbull increased the number of people temporary visa holders imported into Australia to nearly two million.

    Their shorten’s job is to sign a scrap of paper making the two million potential voters full voters overnight.

    Their turnbull creates the shyster lawyer loophole and shorten droves two million visa holding ‘ Australias Dreamers’ straight through it to the ballot box and the family reunion department.

    Comrades.

    Don’t be fooled, Herod.

    Why do you think that was introduced?

    Don’t be obstinate about this. The States and Commonwealth colluded. Spencer’s argument was that they could not do this to defeat the compulsory acquisition/just compensation clause. Unfortunately, our idiot High Court overturned good precedent to get their tummy tickled by their politician masters.

    Don’t let fond memories of John Howard cloud your vision here.

    Howard set up the system that shafted all Australian farmers dot.

    As the apostrophe goes, so goes civilisation.

    You wouldn’t entertain nuclear power if it spewed toxic waste on your lawn. While we are enamoured with the benefits of these technologies we must address the risks and costs too.

    Amidst this push for reliable and affordable power we have to get a few clauses in there somewhere which reminds the deluded masses that wind turbines slice up bats and despoil landscapes, dams require habitat destruction, solar towers fry birds, central Australia has the best place in the world for storing nuclear waste long term, and above all that CO2 is no more of a pollutant than water.

    Can we bring back Chris Buffoon as the Minister for Mass-Ensoggening of International Centrelink-Seekers, undocumented Gucci-wearing Anabolic Arabs and all those water-logged aspiring potential Labor voters?

    At last count, his awesome competence at his job saved the Australian taxpayer from shelling out Centrelink-benefits-for-life on around 2,000 of them who comprehensively failed Labor’s Timor Sea swimming lessons.

    It was the only thing ‘Turtle-Head’ was ever any good at.

    Let’s have what we had: affordable, reliable electricity.

    I was around in media and politics, along with people still in Labor and unions, when our NSW State under both Coalition and Labor built a sensational power network thanks to skilled engineers, skilled trades, and somewhat prescient political leaders.

    How did we turn our backs on all of that for windmills?

    Lets unite on migrants

    The fix is in by the young News sub-editors.
    The language must be changed to support an open borders point of view.
    Were are united on migrants, except for an argument on 100k versus 300k, or some number in between
    What we are not united on, is country shoppers who bypass a number of ‘safe-haven’ countries on their way here. We used to call them asylum seekers. It is Europeans that call illegal immigrants, migrants

    Yes sit, and didn’t the high court invent a new word “extinguished” property rights to explain the government stealing farmers land? When clearly it has been taken and under our constituent compensation must be paid.
