GOVERNMENT HIDES POLICIES,WHY?
BECAUSE THEY ALL DO IT!!
Environment Minister Greg Hunt chose the Friday before Christmas to release the green paper for his “Direct Action Plan” – the Abbott government's policy of paying polluters to cut greenhouse gas emissions
Mr Hunt on Christmas Friday deposited more information that would normally receive extensive media coverage.
“Christmas has come early for mining billionaire and newly minted MP Clive Palmer, with the federal government approving his monster China First coalmine in Queensland's Galilee Basin”.
Minister Nigel Scullion had told the peak aboriginal body – National Congress of Australia's First Peoples – that it should prepare to survive without $15 million funding promised by Labor.
Minister Mr Morrison told journalists this would be his last question and answer session for the year and he would be issuing written statements instead.
It was assumed this was a holiday arrangement, but the following week the Immigration Minister's office insisted Mr Morrison was not on leave and would not say when or whether the briefings would resume.
Perhaps the hapless politicians who missed the opportunity to dump their sad tidings will have more luck if we a have national disaster of some sort to cover their own disturbing news in 2014.
WE WERE HONEST BEFORE THE ELECTION!!!
NOW WE'RE IN GOVERNMENT.
SO SUCK ON THIS!
