Abbott's decision to plan is plan enough

Tony Abbott’s budget reply showed the Opposition leader changing tack at the right time, from negative strategy to a more ‘adult’, consultative attitude.

Last night's budget reply speech by Tony Abbott marks a significant turning point in the election campaign and, more interestingly, an evolution in the man from Tony aka ‘Mr Wrecking Ball’ to ‘Mr Abbott, consultative leader in chief’.

You could almost hear the sighs of relief from the Opposition benches.

The most important thing Tony Abbott could do as Prime Minister would be to put an end to Australia's recent history of public policy making on the run.
