Credibility in politics
Credibility in politics is not looking good for either party
The government's backflip on the ETS which was supposed to be the most important thing in our time and the problems perceived by some by the introduction of a new mining tax.
Then the opposition leader admitting he was a liar (well that was the truth).
Then Tony's reply to the budget where he spent 25 minutes using a lot of words but not actually saying what the opposition would do if elected and the last 5 minutes of the speech saying how he would cut the public service, but no details on that.
Tony said Joe Hockey would reveal all the detail at the National press club.
Now I always thought Joe would be the next Liberal leader but now I wonder.
Joe Hockey's speech did not contain any concrete detail on the savings, a task that was left to finance spokesman Andrew Robb, who briefed journalists on the cuts after Mr Hockey left.
Joe said that axing measures funded by the mining tax is a saving - huh ?
Credibility in politics is at an all time low.
