Kevin Rudd is parroting John Howard on every important issue, including forest destruction. Howard slams the unions whenever he can and Rudd kicks unionists out of the Labor party for swearing. And when it comes to the forestry arm of the CFMEU, these unionists are left alone by both sides of politics.
The pro-mill, anti-forests policies of both leaders unite Rudd and Howard just as much as the pay rise for politicians. Both leaders are subservient to the bully-boy tactics of the logging industry.
HowarRudd don’t have any credibility on climate change. Voters alarmed by the loss of Australia’s forests and the greenhouse gases emitted by burning them will have a limited choice at the election.
