Taking on Tasmania’s Green Taliban

The Palmer United Party is coming good, in Tasmania at least.

They are calling to account the actions of the Green taliban and fronting them in a very aggressive manner.

The Palmer United Party has fiercely attacked Tasmania’s Greens, saying they should be subject to a Senate inquiry over the state’s high unemployment rate.

PUP’s federal senator-elect for Tasmania, Jacqui Lambie, is laying the blame for the unemployment squarely on the Greens and says she will seek to instigate the inquiry after she enters Parliament in July.

“I simply believe that the Greens have destroyed all hope in Tasmania,” Ms Lambie said.

“Labor and the Libs have actually had more than enough time to get this under control and they’ve let this go riot.”

Ms Lambie suggested Greens members had been sabotaging international markets for Tasmanian timber products.

“I just want to get to the bottom of it: exactly what have they been doing over on the international scale, what have they been saying to these companies, why have we lost so much investment?” Ms Lambie said.

“Christine Milne and Bob Brown, how much damage are they doing behind the scenes?

“Something stinks here and I want to know what’s going on.”

Ms Lambie, a former military police officer, said she had been gathering “intelligence” on Greens activities.
