Labor Party promise to make half our cars electric by 2030. Liberals launch bold counter offer to make 50% of drivers actually use their indicators.

“What’s an indicator?” asked lifelong Sydney commuter, Turner Sharp (51).

Bill Shorten’s Labor Party has announced a new plan to help combat climate change by introducing more electric cars onto Australian roads. Under the new plan, 50% of Australian cars would be electric by the year 2030.

“We aim to help cut pollution by removing petroleum based cars from our roads and replacing them with electric ones,” said Bill Shorten.

Never idle, the Morrison Government were quick to counter with the election promise of making 50% of cars on the road use their indicators.

“This is a bold new initiative that will have a profound impact on lowering stress, increase the flow of traffic, and help people be on time and therefore be more productive in the workplace,” offered Prime Minister Morrison.

Whilst the promise of half of our cars being electric by the year 2030 seems far-fetched, voters believe it infinitely more possible than what is perceived as an unobtainable goal by the Morrison government.

“How are they going to achieve that? I don’t think I’ve seen an indicator used in Hobart. Sounds like a typical bullshit political promise,” said voter, Aaron Smithfield (28).

“Mate, might as well promise half our cars will be flying by 2030 over people actually using their indicators here in Brisbane,” said voter, Hayley Scott (32).

“What’s an indicator?” asked lifelong Sydney commuter, Turner Sharp (51).

With election promises coming thick and fast, it seems the Morrison government may have over promised on something they simply cannot deliver. Look in the coming days for them to walk back this promise to something more obtainable, like a quarter of our drivers being able to use a roundabout properly.
