RATE PRIME MINISTER JULIA GILLARD'S ANSWER TO POLITICAL QUESTION #2
HERE IS THE QUESTION FROM THE PUBLIC:
"seeing all the polls throughout Australia and understanding that around 70% of the nation do not want a carbon tax and also knowing that you do not have a mandate to bring in this carbon tax do you not think it is wrong to bring in a law that is against the will of the people?"
HERE IS PM GILLARD'S ANSWER:
Julia Gillard: "I am absolutely certain the right thing to do is to price carbon and seize our nation a clean energy future. Big important changes are often not popular at the time. Floating the dollar wasn't. Reducing tariffs wasn't either. But we wouldn't have today's prosperity if our nation hadn't faced up to those difficult policy changes."
PLEASE INDICATE IN THE POLL TO THE RIGHT HOW YOU RATE THE ABOVE ANSWER BY PM GILLARD.
