Fallout from Labor's pokies wager

The Gillard government is in no danger of being toppled anytime soon, but expect Andrew Wilkie to make Labor’s job of getting legislation through a lot harder.

When you don’t really believe in very much, you tend to see most policy issues as, first and foremost, political issues, requiring political solutions. That’s how the Rudd government viewed climate change, and why it blundered into the catastrophic decision to walk away from the CPRS. Viewing issues through a political prism foreshortens your view, making you inclined to mistake the tactical for the strategic, to emphasise short-term management over longer-term planning.
