Coalition turmoil comes to surface
Dennis Shanahan writes in todays Australian:
Simmering frustration within the opposition burst to the surface in both parliament and the Coalition party room yesterday as Liberals and Nationals called for their leadership to “stand for something” over carbon emissions trading and immigration.
Experienced Liberals believe the opposition is not defending the legacy and strengths of the Howard government on industrial relations, fiscal policy and immigration.
Nationals are openly dismissive of the Liberal paralysis on policy and are simply going their own way.
