Can Grumpy Joe sell the bad news that's coming?

The Coalition is keen to roll out its agenda for tax reform, but an angry electorate may be unlikely to warm to Joe Hockey's sales pitch.

Labor strategists will be breathing a sigh of relief following Prime Minister Abbott’s declaration on Thursday that Joe Hockey will retain the role of Treasurer “indefinitely”.

The brief swirl of a rumour that Malcolm Turnbull would soon be given Hockey’s job was, perhaps, wishful thinking on the part of progressive journalists. But overall, it would have been bad news for Labor.
