The Australian Minerals Council is closing fast on the Guinness World Record For PR Barry Crockers, currently held by the Australian Prime Minister. The Council had planned a devastating one-two punch into the belly of the renewable industry, starting with the somewhat belated awestruck discovery that the Industrial Revolution was amazing and climaxing with the incredible gift of coal into the stockings of all Australian children this Christmas. Instead they’ve tripped, fallen and smacked themselves in the face on the way down.
Leaks about the stocking plan emerged on Twitter at 8:33am this morning. By 8:34am the Minerals Council had scrapped the plans, realising the symbology of a lump of coal in the stockings of all Australian children might not be received as the generous gift they intended.
Speculations are rife about the causes of this gross incompetence at the industry body. Reliable sources swear that Jon Stewart is now working undercover inside the organisation as an advertising mole.
