While the launch of the new carbon emission ideas has moved us on fractionally, there is not much that seems to have changed. Indeed the rhetoric from all sides seems to be very much like the rhetoric of yesterday.
The PM's smiling face assuring us that all will be well and all will be well and all manner of things will be well on TV last evening does little to convince anyone. Equally Mr Abbott's declamations are still full of two and three word slogans...this toxic tax and a bad government getting worse
What I find lacking in this unceasing opposition is the sense that they are actually going to do something.
It simply is not good enough to say we will just oppose and repeal. We cannot simply stand still.
I am also faintly bemused by such spectacles as the Opposition Leader and the Leader of the Nationals saying they feel "disappointed" bu Labor members of Parliament not standing up for what the Opposition thinks they should believe in.
Let's face it from an Opposition that has simply opposed for the sake of opposing it is a bit rich to criticize their opponents, the Government, for not agreeing with them.
