The way the government has allowed the Coalition to call it a great big new tax and allowed it to take root as the truth, rates as one of the most ridiculous spectacular own goals in recent political history.

They should never have said the pricing regime amounted to a ‘carbon tax’. 
This mechanism is income negative.
It is not a tax. But in an attempt to avoid a semantic debate.
The Prime Minister allowed herself to be tarred a liar and gave Tony Abbott a springboard to spread misleading statements about the so called tax.
In fact this emissions trading scheme is not unlike the one suggested by Malcolm Turnbull and supported by the Coalition, this included Tony Abbott.
IF IT NEVER WAS A DUCK
 WHY THE HELL CALL IT A DUCK!!
