Big day for rangas

Five-year-old Findlay Gledhill held a placard as a group of redheads hit the streets of Melbourne yesterday, protesting at the lack of strong policies to reduce greenhouse pollution in the federal election campaign.

''When Julia Gillard became the Prime Minister, it was a great day for rangas globally,'' the head of Rangas for Climate Action, Natalie Jamieson, said.

''However, she's let us down badly on climate change, and now we no longer care what colour hair our politicians have, as long as they have some decent climate policies.

"With our pale skin and delicate features we're worried that we'll fry unless something is done to reduce greenhouse pollution in Australia.''
