Peter Dutton says Labor’s renewable energy overhaul plan ‘never going to be realised’

Opposition leader tells Andrew Bolt Australia needs to consider nuclear reactors and calls on Tim Flannery to apologise

“I mean, we’ve started this debate on nuclear power in our country,” Dutton told Bolt.Read more“It’s absurd that in the year 2022 we can’t be talking about safe new technology in the form of the small modular reactors, and France, Canada, China, the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany and many other countries have either adopted or are considering the adoption of nuclear power to firm up the renewables in the system.

“We’re talking in Europe at the moment about a catastrophic winter where people are going to either feed themselves or turn on their heaters, but they’re not going to be able to afford to do both.“So, power prices will continue to go through the roof in our country whilst Labor pursues their zealot-like approach.”

If Albanese declared that Tuesday follows Monday, Dutton would Disagree and. The Media would all be reporting it as if his opinion mattered. Dutton has had nothing useful to day since he took over the Morrison losers. Let’s dwell on the fact that when Labor routs the LNP in Vic and then NSW, it will be the end of the Liberal Party as a meaningful force, as prophesied by John Howard recently.

What do you expect from someone who is scared of the Sun I guess potatoes take their world view from living underground with other like-minded potatoes…!?

Good coverage of the issues here. We can all agree Spud is up to date with 20th-century solutions.

Ummm his leadership of the opposition will be short and ugly as expected 🥔.

Victorian opposition leader calls Andrew Thorburn’s resignation as Essendon CEO ‘ridiculous’Matthew Guy criticises debate that led to resignation, after premier says church’s views were ‘appalling’ I would expect nothing less from a member of a party riddled with homophobes. Guess that’s Matthew Guy nailed his colours to the mast, making it clear that nobody should vote Liberal if they aren’t into enabling the further spread and platforming of religious bigotry. I find it ridiculous that this Matthew Guy, who was very keen to play the ' African Gangs ' race card at the last election somehow gets another go in the top job. But what are you going to do?

Shut up Mr Spud, you had 9 years to do something and did Sweet FA. It will if we keep you liberals from power 1 term ALP GOVERNMENT. Putin has already started it ww3, Again we see.... Well he would, wouldn't he? He's Peter Dutton! 'Delusional dutton'! It has a certain ring about , when you hear and see it! 'Delusional dutton' hmm......!

Sounds like a quote from a movie villain. Then again... Stupid nasty little man. 'consider nuclear reactors' c'mon what a load of tripe. All this results in is distraction to allow coal and gas to continue for longer.

Dutton tells Bolt ... and that's news? who cares what he thinks.

Earlier this year, the CSIRO found wind and solar generation are “ the cheapest source of electricity generation and storage in Australia, even when considering additional integration costs arising due to the variable output of renewables, such as energy storage and transmission”. “But at the end of the day, who organisations – external of government – hire and fire is up to them, and I just don’t see why politicians, particularly the premier, have to be an overlord or commentator on everyone else’s organisation. The CSIRO examined the viability of small modular nuclear reactors through a consultation process with Australia’s electricity sector and concluded there was no prospect “of domestic projects this decade, given the technology’s commercial immaturity and high cost”.
