Kristina Keneally calls for Bettina Arndt to be stripped of Australia Day honour – politics live | Australia news


You might not expect a former Labor Premier of New South Wales to say this but let me just reflect, how good is Gladys Berejiklian?

I mean, here is a Liberal leader in New South Wales, who’s being quite clear with the community. Net zero emissions by 2050 is a New South Wales target, Gladys Berejiklian says, and it’s because it is right in line with the Paris Agreement.

But Gladys Berejiklian is leading, Stephen Marshall in South Australia is leading, right around the country, the business community is leading.

Our farmers even know they have had, here in Australia, our farmers have had some $1 billion wiped off the crop production across the last two decades because the climate is changing and what are our farmers doing?

They’re changing. Our farmers are aspiring to net zero emissions not by 2050, but by 2030.

So we’ve got farmers, we’ve got the business community, we’ve got state and territory governments, we have 73 government across the world leading in this and we’ve got Scott Morrison an ad man with no plan failing to show up- no wonder Australian are frustrated and disappointed in their Prime Minister.
