Greg Hunt's magnificent bluff

Greg Hunt has managed an extraordinary 4 year game of bluff that has meant the Coalition has fooled the electorate they can axe the tax without undermining action on carbon pollution.

I remember meeting with Greg Hunt not long after Turnbull had been toppled from the Liberal leadership to discuss research we were planning at the Grattan Institute. At the time of the meeting I genuinely felt sorry for Hunt. He had been asked to eat and enjoy what looked like a truly horrible shit sandwich, to borrow from Abbott's turn of phrase.
