A Coalition game of intimidation

Andrew Robb and Greg Hunt have sent a letter to the CEFC calling for it to sit idle until the election or risk having agreements voided upon a Coalition victory. Such meddling sets a worrisome precedent.

The Coalition’s finance spokesperson, Andrew Robb, and climate spokesperson, Greg Hunt, have written to the Clean Energy Finance Corporation urging the body to effectively make no funding commitments at all this year – or risk the Coalition cancelling any contracts executed.

It sets a dangerous precedent.

The opposition of the day should not be looking to intimidate government staff to ignore their legislated duties even if it is confident it can get rid of said legislation in a matter of months.
