How many people in your electorate did you REPRESENT today?
You are very well aware that the majority of the people you are supposed to REPRESENT did not think that the “clean energy” package that you voted for today is in the national interest!
The people who voted for your party last year did so, having been told that there would not be a carbon tax under Ms Gillard’s government, so what have you done – you shamefully abandoned your constituents today. Surely you do not think that you will get re-elected, having so betrayed your supporters.
Self-interest is a very powerful motivator, but in this case it has been a very short-sighted view – shame on you!!!
