AUSSIE GOVERNMENT PROPOSES EMISSIONS TAX ON NEW CARS

This piece explains what is happening in Australia. According to a government statement the average annual cost of complying with the policy would be more than $2bn a year. What a waste of money. Unfortunately for the Australian people the Labour opposition are even more wedded to this kind of policy and so, as in the UK, there is no escape. Only if or when there is sufficient opposition from the people by voting for some new party will this change.

If there is one lesson to be learnt from the success of UKIP here, it is that if the big parties see their votes going to a new party in sufficient numbers then they will be likely to adopt a different policy. Hence the Conservatives offering the vote on leaving the EU.
