Check out this triple somersault with four and half twists from Cities Minister Alan Drudge:
Moving migrants into the regions and smaller cities would help fight climate change because congestion in Australia’s largest urban centres will fall, according to Population and Cities Minister Alan Tudge.
Mr Tudge appeared on a panel at the University of Melbourne / The Australian social and economic Outlook Conference with Labor’s infrastructure and cities spokesman Anthony Albanese and Melbourne Lord Mayor Sally Capp.
“If you have less congestion you have fewer emissions, it’s that simple,” Mr Tudge said after lunch.
…Mr Albanese backed part of the idea, at least, telling the audience that the plan is possible but he wants a focus on Australian workers for Australian jobs, which would reduce the temporary migration rate.
So migrants fart less in the bush? Drive cars less? Use electricity less?
Just remember that Alan Drudge is in charge of ensuring that your overrun city is fixed.
