Green Labor Alliance – Nothing has Changed

“Senator Milne’s diatribe at the National Press Club today adds to the chaos surrounding this Government, but in reality nothing has changed,” Senator Abetz said today.

“The dysfunction of the Labor-Greens Alliance is once again apparent for all to see.”

“The Greens have worked out how toxic the Labor brand is and are trying to distance themselves from it.”

The mining and carbon tax debacles have been the last straw,” Senator Abetz said.

“Senator Milne says Labor has effectively ended its agreement with the Greens by walking into the arms of the miners, but that the Greens will stand by this agreement nevertheless.”

“The fact is that the MRRT was not even mentioned in the Greens-Labor Agreement and the Greens voted for it,” Senator Abetz said.

“Typically the Greens want to have their cake and eat it too. The Greens will still guarantee supply and they will vote to keep Julia Gillard and Labor in office until September.”

“The Australian public are sick and tired of the erratic dictates of the Greens,” Senator Abetz said.

“Their Alliance with Labor has seen Labor betray Labor supporters and the Greens betray Green supporters.”

“The only way to change the Government is to vote for the Coalition at the next election, particularly in the Senate,” Senator Abetz said.
