For fuck’s sake, enough already

Two stories that just won’t die: petrol taxes and free publicity for a stupid movie.

Has society really sunk so low that the product placements in a movie for Cosmo-reading twits are news?

And well done to Brendan Nelson for keeping the petrol tax non-story alive for so long. Fuck our future for an opinion poll blip, why don’t you? But you have to admire the politics. By promising to do something years into the future, which will have no noticeable effect if it ever happens, he forces the Government to do something, or look like they don’t care about the poor struggling masses.

Petrol taxes are TOO LOW, you moron. Until the price reflects the scarcity of the resource and the environmental damage it causes, people have no incentive to stop using it. But try selling that to the battlers.
