Peter Garrett last year called for a debate over nuclear power; then he changed his mind; then, last month, he again called for a debate:

“I think we should have a debate about nuclear policy, including our uranium policy,” he said. “My position’s always been the same.”

This week, Garrett’s wish was granted. The Prime Minister has promised a nuke debate. Garrett’s response:

Prime Minister John Howard is creating a false nuclear debate to deflect attention from a lack of action on climate change, Labor frontbencher Peter Garrett says …

“The prime minister’s creating one his great false debates, flying kites, making mischief, and covering up for the fact that he’s done absolutely zip on climate change – nothing in the budget for it,” Mr Garrett told ABC radio.

You asked for it, airhead.
