Abbott's set to fall into the Gillard tax trap

The commission's ideas go beyond ending the 'age of entitlement' to paint a dry-as-dust world most Australians would not want. They're not an excuse to ditch pre-election tax promises.

The Abbott government is like the farmer supposed to be burning a paddock of stubble who ends up with the whole property in flames.

Maybe it will be able to pull things together in the May 13 budget but at the moment it is being stifled by smoke and heat.
