Update: Well, that was most unenlightening.
Joe Hockey has seemed to be in a very grumpy mood all campaign, and he was allowed to get away with his usual bizarre contradictions. Swan’s lines on infrastructure and human capital could have been recycled from 2007. Meanwhile, Kerry O’Brien appears stuck in a time warp – the template being the 1987 election campaign where Paul Keating skewered John Howard on a costings black hole. Very poor performance by O’Brien, allowing both to get away with just reciting their talking points. The emphasis on leaks really was a waste of time, with the only salient point – that the Coalition is evading scrutiny, being lost in a morass of counterpoint which seemed to occupy about half the time allocated.
None of the very serious problems we have in this country even really got an airing.
