There's a lot of sand in Australia. There's big deserts in the middle, and beaches around the outside.
Because of all the sand, some humans, including politicians, have mistaken Australia for a litter box.
Some people think we don't need to look after it. Some politicians have been saying they want to get rid of the "green tape" which means industry has to be careful not to hurt the environment
I want more "green tape". It sounds like something fun to play with. Endless green tape! I want it so hard to damage the environment that companies don't bother, they find ways to do things without causing harm instead. So, I've decided to make Billy, the Feline Pawty Candidate for Wide Bay, the Environment Minispurr when we win the election. Billy thinks the way I do, he wants to save the planet. That's a big job for a little guinea pig, but I know Billy can do it.
He'll do a better job than a lot of the human politicians are doing now, anyway. They have a lot of strange ideas. Some of them are saying we need nuclear power, and that will help the environment. I've checked with the cats at Fukushima and Chernobyl, and they say that's not really a good idea. If only we had access to sunlight or wind or some other source of power that we didn't have to dig out of the ground!
Some of our politicians really love to dig things out of the ground. They just love digging. Here, in Queensland, the premier has a real love of holes in the ground. He likes mines, and tunnels. Even when he was Brisbane mayor, he was digging tunnels. Maybe he's wombat. That would explain why he loves digging tunnels. I'll have to find that out.
Cats aren't that fond of digging, at least, not any deeper than we dig in our littler trays. But green tape? I'd love a nice big ball of green tape to play with.
Until next time we meet in the Bloggosphere,
Supreme Feline Overlord,
Feline Pawty Prime Minispurrrial Candidate.
