Brown snubs PM over forestry dispute

Greens leader Bob Brown has called off his routine meetings with Prime Minister Julia Gillard in a stand-off over her handling of Tasmania's forest peace deal.

The Prime Minister and Senator Brown have held regular meetings since Ms Gillard was handed power after the last election.

But he says Ms Gillard has not kept her word on protecting native forests under the $276 million federally funded agreement signed more than four months ago to end most native forest harvesting.


Gillard thinks that she because she now has increased her numbers by one that she doesn't need the Greens any longer. How foolish - the Craig Thomson affair could still blow up any time, and who knows somebody might even die, which puts her right back where she was twelve months ago.

And I'm afraid it only confirms her as somebody who doesn't mean a word she says, and who cannot be trusted.
