History and the 'Carbon Tax'.
History. On Saturday Oct 13 1986. A former Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser gives a speech at the Memphis Country Club and leaves for a drink. He is found the next morning wandering around minus his passport, his wallet and trousers. An antique song "Donald Whares yer troosers" made a short lived come back. ....................................................................................... Being frugal with power usage over the past Quarter, you know the usual things like remembering to turn off from the power point and turning off when last out of the particular room, has actually reduced our consumption of electric power. However, despite our efforts to reduce the carbon emissions and save the blessed planet, we were Shocked to receive a power bill which exceeded the previous one by 27%. A jocular MP recently suggested that a punitive tax on Beer, Baked Beans, Port Wine and Pizzas should be imposed due to the fact that the consumption of these aforementioned products create flatulence and carbon emissions, those were only a few mentioned in the food chain. Further to the list of taxable carbon producers were wood fires, barbecues and bringing back the ancient chimney tax. I suppose when nothing else can be found to tax, there will be no alternative than to tax SUN usage, say Fifty bucks a month on each 10x5 Solar panel. If you are an Aussie reading this post maybe your intellectual input regarding this sudden gouge in the cost of electrical power can impart an explanation to which I have failed to comprehend. Let him that would move the world first move himself. Back soon ... Vest
