    There seems to be a quite significant difference between the coalition government in South Australia, the Federal government in Canberra and Mathew Guy’s Coalition opposition in Melbourne.

    South Australia has no coal worth speaking of, which means it is actually possible to get some sense out of its Liberal premier, Steven Marshall when it comes to renewables. He doesn’t have a powerful coal lobby breathing down his neck because there isn’t one. There is only one coal mine in the state and that’s in Leigh Creek, so Marshall can be ‘pragmatic’.

    In the coal states and Canberra, the biggest problem is debunkering the lumpen-Coaletariat. The Coalition pollies behave like marionettes with nothing but straw in their brains, which is why they need their energy policy written for them by the IPA, the Minerals Council and the Murdoch press.

    Such obtuse behaviour can’t be just because of all that election time coal money, or offers of post-political careers, or the prospect of very obscure Ivy League ‘scholarships’ for coalition members’ kiddies. It isn’t, despite determined efforts to make it seem that way, that free market ideology damages their brains and turns them all into the secular equivalent of Hillsong Creationists who think Climate science is bunk, just like evolution.

    I think it has something to do with sex.

    Yes .. sex. Think of the private school backgrounds. Think sado-masochism and strict coal funded dominatrixes (in shiny and hard black underwear, naturally) who have files and files of very undignified records of their naughty little boys in very compromising positions, wearing dresses and making more noise than they do in parliament at question time .. to the beat of the Usher’s rod.

    Picture this .. It seems so right. It makes sense. They cannot be as intellectually subnormal as they pretend.

    When you watch their ‘slavish’ behaviour as soon as the subject of energy comes up, you can almost see that po-faced look that comes when something is quietly squeezing very vulnerable soft tissue.

    The Minerals Councillors aren’t just a bunch of pretty faces. They are disciplinarian dominants who hold a whip to their ever obedient Coalition crawlers, but not one that any of them would want to ever be used …

    Corruption and brain damage are perhaps necessary, but not sufficient to explain Coalition behaviour on energy. They have had it beaten into them. They are very bad boys. On election night this weekend in Victoria, we must make them atone, one stroke .. I mean one vote, at a time.
