He can’t even get the support of his team at this stage! So say the reports in the newspapers. Look, we haven’t seen any legislation, but this is an announcement looking for politics.
Again. This is a government that yesterday announced half a billion dollars of new government money that today says, “we want less government.” What is this?
This is a government that says they support carbon capture and storage and they need funds for it, but they abolished more than $ 500 million for it when they took office.
This is a government that does not trust companies and markets, which continues to intervene. You had a $ 600 million job to build a gas-fired power plant in Currie Currie. Government interventions to have studios for people who are building a coal-fired power plant, or want to in North Queensland.
The contradictions are there from day to day. When we return to parliament, this policy will have changed five or six times.
