A plan of grand ambition, not austerity

The Commission of Audit has thrown all the balls in the air via a federal-state affairs shake-up. That will cause much debate and take some heat off the Abbott government.

That is not to say that the exercise is not needed, or that the commission has done a bad job -- quite the reverse. Australia is due for such an exercise and the commission’s work is extensive, considered and in many instances non-partisan.
