As the carbon tax debate continues, things seem to be getting a little bit out of hand.
Independent MP Tony Windsor has received a number of death threats over the issue after showing his support for the tax, while Opposition MP Sophie Mirabella compared Prime Minister Gillard to Libyan leader Moamar Gaddafi.
While the Government and Opposition continue to ramp up their rhetoric on the issue, Nationals MP Darren Chester has called on all sides to calm down over the debate.
However, Opposition leader Tony Abbott suggests he cannot prevent the anger in the community that has resulted from this “betrayal” by the Gillard government.
To give us the latest details on the carbon tax debate, Catherine Zengerer was joined by retired diplomat Tony Kevin. She asked Mr Kevin whether he believes a carbon tax is the right way to go.
