I'm with the populists and red necks

The Liberals have been accused of being populists for their stand on climate change. I should hope so. Populist as apposed to elitist is what the Liberals should be about. They are supposed to be for the ordinary person, the "forgotten people" as Menzies called us. The Libs should take the term as a compliment.

I also get annoyed when people are called red necks. The term refers to people who have red necks because they suffer from sun burn. Farmers, laborers and the like. Watch the news and you will hear politicians, including Labor politicians, call people red necks. They are insulting their own base.
