Australia’s hard-liners have the right idea for eco protesters

Although they may appear to be in a paradise of sun, sea and budgie smugglers at times, the Australians do not take any prisoners.

Take, for example, the way they deal with climate change protesters who want to make commuters’ lives miserable.

While Just Stop Oil activists might be offered a cup of tea by the police here, they are sent to jail down under.

One protestor who blocked traffic at Sydney Harbour Bridge was just sentenced to 15 months in prison.

Deanna “Violet,” Coco’s lawyer, said that it was “disproportionate” that Coco was denied bail prior to an appeal next year.

But I’m not so certain. The 32-year-old stood in front of a truck while holding a flare.

She pleaded guilty in seven cases, including resisting arrest and using or modifying an authorised explosive that was not prescribed.

If there was anything that was disproportional, it was her protest which blocked one of five bridge-bound lanes in the morning rush hour.

Similar to our antipodean counterparts, they have taken a zero-tolerance attitude to illegal immigration and sent unauthorised boats to the Pacific islands of Manus and Nauru for processing. There is no guarantee that these boats will be released.

George Eustice is Britain’s ex-environment secretary. He complained that the UK had “given away far too much in return for far too little” in our recent trade agreement with Australia.

The Australian rules may make our Government laugh.
