Worst drought ever, tips Costello.
Yes, that's right, the Treasurer's become a climate expert. Useful really, given that half the country is already on fire less than two weeks into October and all my old Curramulka Primary classmates on Yorke Peninsula are bracing themselves today for the total destruction of their already drought-ridden dwarf barley crops after today's hot winds.
Here's my favourite bit of the Costello article:
'In a speech the previous night to the Energy Supply Association of Australia, Mr Costello, while endorsing Government policy on global warming, added a strong personal view that reducing it should be a priority along with economic growth.'
That's it, Cap'n Smirk, you take a clear, firm, unambiguous stand. Bold lad.
Are they bastards, or are they just f*ckwits? You decide.*
Either way, shoot me now.
