At last a columnist has had the courage to declare that battlers would be unimpressed by Cate Blanchett and Michael Caton's elite ad.
The Castle's Darryl Kerrigan would be unlikely to vote for another tax, particularly if pushed by the rich and elite in our society such as actors and millionaires.
From The National Times, Rowan Dean.
What a silly move by the Carbonistas, they are so removed from ordinary folk that they never envisaged a negative reaction to their ad effort. What utter muppets.Opinion polls show overwhelmingly that the majority of average voters over 50 are opposed to the tax by a factor of 2 to 1.
Caton may be "saying yes" to a carbon tax, but the odds are that his alter ego Darryl Kerrigan - still living under a flight path in the suburbs and loving nothing more than a two-stroke engine on full throttle - would be "saying no" and telling Greg Combet and Julia Gillard very firmly where they can stick it.
