The much anticipated convoy of no confidence barrelled into Canberra today, to protest against the current government…or about any minority government…or about the carbon tax…or about stopping live cattle exports….or … According to organisers there were going to be a huge amount of trucks and people rolling into town, but the much anticipated hoards never eventuated. There were some truck horn blasts along Northbourne Avenue and around 200 people on the Parliament House lawns, but it appears this was the extent of it.

Canberra residents will be waiting in expectation for any further developments tomorrow, but as Glazov in the Drum Opinion points out, a journey from WA to Canberra is almost certainly more expensive than a year of the proposed carbon tax – even without counting lost work time. Great to see the debate firing up…but wondering how much of this is a campaign of misinformation?
