JULIA Gillard has admitted she promised there would be no carbon tax during the last election but said circumstances had changed.
The Prime Minister today qualified her comments made a week before the August 2010 poll, when she ruled out a carbon tax, arguing her government had wanted to legislate for an emissions trading scheme.
”Yes, I did say that and circumstances have changed,” Ms Gillard told the Nine Network today, following mounting criticism that she has broken a promise reported in The Australian.
“What my vision was, was to be elected as prime minister and to introduce an emissions trading scheme, which is not a carbon tax.”

A democracy dies with Gillard's continuous lies,Julia Gillard, "There will be no carbon tax under the government I lead"
Julia Gillard tires to excuse her lie with another lie:
False again. Gillard is clearly implying that these changed “circumstances” forced her to do what she had explicity promised not to.
