We haven’t even implemented the funding cuts yet, and already the ABC is asking the wrong questions.
7.30 this evening (15 July) asked “How much will we save” when the carbon tax is abolished? Surely the more important question is what will happen to carbon emissions, atmospheric pollution, and global warming?
Or what alternative measures will the Government deploy to deal with that?
Isn’t that more important than whether the public saves a few dollars or big companies make bigger profits?
There aren't too many ways available for venting one's anger or frustration at some of the things happening in the world around us. One such escape valve is the good old Letter to the Editor, even if only a small proportion of them gets published. It is often well-nigh impossible to keep the discussion short enough for the newspapers. So rather that have them expire in some Editor's Trash bin, we'll preserve them for posterity here. Inevitably, though, some nuances will be lost for those unfamiliar with the background or the letter or article to which we are responding. But each is undoubtedly a miniature literary masterpiece, though you may find the themes become somewhat repetitive.
