Gillard’s carbon tax

59% say: don’t like it, and 55% say: its useless

A new poll by the Australian Chamber of commerce and Industry says it all. It shows that 59 per cent of people do not support a carbon tax and more than half believe it would not help the environment.

“While it was widely accepted that the public knew a carbon tax would hit their hip pocket, this survey shows the public are almost equally concerned about the impact of a carbon tax on jobs,” the chamber chief said.

Couple this with the fact that Gillard is again falling in the polls, it would take a really stubborn Prime Minister to do it. Many think she will. This of course is bloody minded and it is clearly not in Australia’s “national interest” to do so.
