“Victorians aren't stupid and can see what the fossil fuel obsessed opposition is doing. First it's onshore conventional gas and then it will be a slippery slope to fracking, possibly with the army to force it on unwilling communities if Tony Abbott has his way.” ~ Andrew Laird ... See MoreSee Less
Cheaper gas. That's our plan.
It's why we've announced we'll overturn the ban on conventional gas exploration in Victoria - but we'll keep the ban on fracking.

NO FRACKING WAY ARE WE LETTING YOU ROB AND DECEIVE US ANY MORE THAN YOU ALREADY HAVE
This is a sobering read. Greedy gas companies backed by politicians have plundered our gas supplies and flogged it overseas at huge profits while driving up gas costs here in Australia. Plus they're sitting on stockpiles of enough gas to resolve this problem.
Double-dipping...double profit...and we the people get screwed twice....one, in not economically benefiting from our own gas resources, and two, in having to pay more for gas.
And their solution to this is to try inflict a frack storm upon us and to bully states into lifting their frack bans and moratoriums....so they can make even more profits flogging gas offshore and driving gas prices up onshore. Indeed, Tony (the Mad Monk) Abbott has suggested turning the army on us and force their frack dreams upon us.
STAND UP, FIGHT BACK, OR BE ROBBED AND FRACKED
