Abbott's still dancing on Labor's grave

The government's apparent lack of action on Qantas is part of a broader strategy to wedge Labor at every turn and continue to lump it with blame for the nation's economic woes.

The Abbott government is nothing if not ambitious. Day by day, as commentators scratch their heads over the government’s economic plans, a deeper political strategy is emerging that would make Robert Menzies blush. 

The small coterie of MPs and advisers comprising the Abbott leadership team seem to be laying the groundwork for an epic run in office. That strategy begins with an extended period of fixating on the Labor Party rather than the economy.
