Union ad celebrates great moments of denial

Trade Union CFMEU has joined the carbon tax debate with a campaign celebrating great moments of denial in history.

The ad – created by former Chaser Charles Firth – include Roman soldiers insisting nothing more would be heard of Jesus, priests refusing to accept the world is flat and aborigines convinced that the First Fleet will be passing through. These positions are then contrasted with Liberal leader Tony Abbott expressing doubt about climate change science.

The ad coincides with the weekend’s announcement on the government’s carbon tax price.

Firth was also behind the CFMEU’s hard-up billionaire ads in the run up to the election.
