Newman’s electricity tax by stealth

Increasing fixed charges are biting hard in Queensland and input comparisons with other states suggests consumers are right to be sceptical.

There is a great deal to be concerned about regarding the regulator’s hike in Queensland electricity prices and the associated political debate. Here's the headline:

'Electricity prices to go up 5% even if that great-big, horrible, job-destroying carbon tax goes.'

It kind of puts the last four years of childish debate into context, doesn’t it?
