Annoyed at the Gillard Government’s ability to articulate how a carbon tax may work. Dan Ilic has taken the liberty of dumbing it down for us all.
It’s kind of like this, a friend comes over to your house and raids your pantry and then cooks up a feast, then eats it and then, takes a little shit in the corner of your living room. Not a big shit, a small shit, so no one really minds, but gradually the shit builds up to be a big pile of shit, and it gets larger and larger. Then the people from next door find out that your pantry is full of good shit. So now lots of people from neighbourhood are having cook ups in your kitchen and shitting in your living room, some people in your family are like “um… do you realise they’re shitting over here” and you say “oh yeah it’s been like that for a while don’t worry it’s what they do.” By now most of your family can’t remember a time when there wasn’t any shit in the living room, shitting everywhere is just a part of your family’s way of life. Then your mum finally cracks the shits that there’s shit everywhere and decides to give everyone fines for being filthy fucks. The less they shit, the less they have to pay, hopefully they will learn eventually to walk up stairs and shit in the toilet, sure it’s more of an effort than shitting in the living room but in the long run it’s better for everyone.
