A depressing debate

The debate between Abbott and Rudd was depressing for its absence of any kind of plan to address the country's long-term challenges. Instead we ended up with sycophantic drivel.

The so-called Great Debate was in the end a depressing one. Neither Tony Abbott nor Kevin Rudd outlined how they’ll address the major challenges confronting this nation.

Both were almost indistinguishable on the issue of climate change and energy, choosing to play down what they might do in the future.
