In a follow up to the last post, spokesman for Angela Merkel’s right wing Christian Democrats has called Australia’s emissions policy a ‘suicide strategy’:
It is just as I said, Australia wants to cling to the dinosaur technology of dinosaur fuels. It is a suicide strategy that is asking for Australia to become a dinosaur economy.
Merkel is proving to be one the most staunchly hard-line right wing neoliberal Christian Democrat leaders in living memory, one who insists on pushing a brutal austerity policy for the EU.
If the Liberal government fails to even listen to the warnings of hardline right wing ideologs, then they are truly stupid indeed.
