Abbott Accuses Gillard Of Breaking Election Promise

Opposition Leader Tony Abbott has reacted to the government’s agreement with the Greens by accusing Julia Gillard of breaking her promise to hold a Citizens’ Assembly on climate change.

At a press conference after Gillard signed an agreement with the Greens, Abbott said the nation could now expect a carbon tax.

He said there were now two coalitions in Australia but only the Liberal-Nationals coalition could adequately represent regional Australia.
