One Nation NSW finds it amusing that Greg Combet described those who exercised their democratic right and attended today’s Canberra rally against Labor’s Carbon Tax, as ratbags and extremists. It seems that anyone who does not agree with Labor policies, are now seen as divisive and a danger to our democracy. One Nation questions what has happened to freedom of speech in this country?
It was not that long ago that the Labor Party and the unions held a long and bitter campaign to discredit the GST. All sorts of inaccurate claims and statements such as “Jobs not GST” were used. The scare campaign lasted some time and we certainly cannot remember the ALP being branded as extremists for their actions. History also shows us that once in power the Labor party did not abolish the GST but instead kept it so now the carbon tax will become a much larger extension of what the Labor party called an unfair and unjust tax.
One Nation believes that these statements are the signal of a major decline in our countries democracy. Policy is no longer debated in this country and all opponents are crushed to force an agenda. Surely this type of behaviour vindicates all that One Nation has said over the years for this is why we began and what we have been fighting against for over a decade.
