For those of you who do not know, the Gatton District is located some 100k west of Brisbane, Nolan’s Transport is one of the biggest employers in the area, and only last year was given the “Business of the Year” award.
Now read on!
Julia Gillard’s Labor Party and the Greens are going to take us all down with this Carbon Tax. We, as Australians, should protest and protest until we cannot protest any more! This is a real scenario, brought on by Gillard.
Nolan’s Transport, which operates out of Gatton, has been earmarked as one of Gillard’s 500. This Company has been going for 102 years, is still run by the family, operates 126 transports and employs 265 people. Gillard has targeted this Company as one of her 500 ‘guests’ to pay carbon tax. Just imagine. Last year, this Company was told it put out 144,700 tonnes of carbon gas. So, 144,700 tonnes x $23 = $3,328,100.00. Yes, that is correct – 3.3 million dollars!!!
Where is Australia headed if companies like this one, (and there are several much bigger than Nolan’s – LinFox comes to mind) are put out of business? Our Prime Minister said there would be no extra charges on transport or fuel. What do you call 3.3 million dollars on just one operator?
Any transport Company producing less than 25,000 tonnes of carbon tax pays nothing. If Nolan’s goes broke or shuts down operations and another 126 replacement transports are put on the road by smaller Companies under the 25,000 tonne limit to take up the slack, then exactly the same amount of carbon gas will be produced, illustrating the futility of the whole exercise.
Mr. Nolan said in an interview that if he put what the Company was worth into a bank account, he would make ten times as much in interest as he makes now, throwing 265 people out of work. We must, as citizens on Australia and tax payers – not to mention consumers of goods – somehow force Gillard and her Green and “Independent“ cronies to an election on the issue of Carbon Tax before July this year to keep this Nation going. If we don’t, this country will be ruined!
This is just one scenario. What about the other 499 companies that will also be hit by this ridiculous tax?
Additionally, we must not forget the other smaller companies which will fail because they depend on these larger companies which are doomed to either fold or cut back on their work-force.
COME ON AUSTRALIA, THIS IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. BRING THIS GOVERNMENT TO THE POLLS, TO SAVE OUR COUNTRY FROM GOING INTO POVERTY!
IF THE TAX IS IMPLIMENTED IT WILL TAKE MANY YEARS TO RECOVER. DO YOUR PATRIOTIC DUTY FOR YOUR FELLOW AUSTRALIANS – THINGS ARE BAD ENOUGH NOW!
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
Please pass on to all in your address book.
A very concerned Aussie.
