Andrew Leigh is a senior member of Australia’s opposition. In response to one of his newsletters, I wrote this to him:
- Andrew, that’s a great report. Thank you.
However, I have a beef with the ALP regarding climate policy. Officially, you still support the expanded mining of thermal coal, notably Adani (and therefore Palmer and Reinhart). You still are for fracking in the NT and elsewhere. And you have not opposed oil drilling in the Bight.
Unless you change these policies, your words are only words.
He sent me a courteous reply, and a link to an article of his in a newspaper.
