Abbott's carbon credibility is in tatters

The Coalition's break from the Greens may be less effective than it hopes, with Climate Institute's damning indictment of Direct Action policy handing the minor party crucial ammo in the fight for the seat of Melbourne.

Yesterday’s decision by Tony Abbott to make a ‘captain’s call’ to preference the Greens last in every lower house seat they contest, as well as in the Senate, puts huge pressure on the member for Melbourne, Adam Bandt.

Bandt defiantly told reporters yesterday that he would win the seat anyway, and that he was campaigning hard to raise his primary vote to the 50 per cent required to take the seat without preferences.
