What a coincidence! Labor will spend citizens' money to buy batteries.
Could this be related to Daniel Andrews needing Green's votes to maintain control of Victoria in the election on Saturday?
Given Shorten's credibility problems, it is doubtful that he will tell Australians the truth behind his announcement but we can live in hope.
Julia Gillard trusted Shorten. That did not work out well.
Kevin Rudd trusted Shorten. That too did not go well.
There is no reason to believe that the Shorten of today has developed sound judgment skills as he aged.
Labor spent money on school halls, pink batts and other "responsible spending measures" announced by Wayne Swan. We are still paying back the billions of Dollars that Labor wasted.
The key issue here is that the Leader of the Opposition will say whatever it takes to maintain Labor's control over Australia's way of life. Labor is driven by socialist manifestos yet Shorten ignores the fact that governments around Australia have already sold their power businesses to private enterprise.
Shorten is proposing that Labor will re enter the power business as storage device funders. It is not something that tax payers should be forced to do.
Labor should stick to the basics and come up with better policies for the things that matter including, health, employment, defence, education and support for small business.
Shorten wants Green votes on Saturday because it is Green's preferences that will save the dangerous arrogant Andrews government. Shorten's personal cheer squad GetUp! needed energy to rally in the 48 hours before the election and it is battery driven.
