    Actually, Australians didn’t vote to repeal the carbon tax – it was simply one of a number of issues the conservative opposition government had repeatedly told the voters that was “bad” for them and if told something often enough… And as for the $500.00 “saved” by the average household, the majority of the original rise in bills was not due to the carbon tax but by the big energy companies “gold plating” the network (upgrading poles and wires unnecessarily), so the average “saving” received after the repeal was much less than $500 if anything at all! Another example of the consumer being hoodwinked by big business and governments!
