Yurts for the Masses Political Fix
In the wake of a massive backlash against the effective shelving of the former Howard Governments plan to bankrupt the country by putting a photovoltaic cell on every middle class home in Australia and the worst housing affordability crisis since the white man came and as a means of showing solidarity with the Tibetan People, the Rudd Government has made a multi million dollar purchase of Yurts.
Yurt and Land Packages, to be sold in an affordable price bracket in the outer suburbs of major metropolitan areas, will be offered on means tested basis for families earning less than $250,000, to assist striving Australians to get into the housing market. To demonstrate their green credentials, a free Yak, and trailer to provide of cheap environmentally sustainable transportation, a yak poo cooker and power generation system have been thrown in along with a wind up computer and free fibre to the yurt broadband.
"We just want to give these guys a leg up before the next election. We are worried that they could be picked off by a rejuventated uber Green Coalition at the next election" said a spokesman.
