Turnbull’s Policy Re-think
Tony Abbott has done a lot to impress Malcolm Turnbull with his new-found praise for Coalition policy on climate change.
Back in December 2009 Turnbull’s blog entry scolded “Mr Abbott apparently knows what he is against, but not what he is for.” Turnbull pointed to Abbott’s lack of financial thinking about replacing coal-fired power stations, but this week Abbott’s ideas were “superior to the Rudd government’s climate change policy vacuum”.
Turnbull’s blog entry was a call for real leadership on climate change. “Now politics is about conviction and a commitment to carry out those convictions.”
