According to the Australian Labor Party’s Policy website:
“The key to tackling climate change is to drastically increase our investment in renewable energies like solar. That is why we’ll commit to 50% renewable energy by 2030 because it will cut pollution, help create jobs of the future and lower energy prices.”
The evidence that the once great Labor Party of Australia has been hijacked by the far-left is right there in that policy statement. When we see former Labor Party stalwarts come out and say that Australia should embrace Nuclear Power, the right needs to praise these courageous souls.
Former Prime Minister Bob Hawke told a crowd at a music festival in Queensland that:
“I do appreciate the very strong feelings held by people in this issue. The simple fact is (compared) to fossil fuel power stations nuclear power is clean. They are necessary to reduce the impact of fossil fuel.”
This view from a former Labor Leader is in stark contrast to what The Labor Party stands for today!
The Australian reported on 29th December 2016 that:
“Labor’s traditional working-class supporters will bear the brunt of spiking electricity prices and power failures in the fallout from South Australian, Victorian and Queensland governments’ push towards ambitious renewable energy targets”
Here we have a former Labor stalwart pushing for a common sense approach to Climate Change which will protect the people who they purport to represent and on the other hand we have a Labor Party that is willing to sell out its base.. To woe the Green vote!
One Nation must be licking their lips at the thought of Labor’s attitude towards it supporters.
