Has Gillard's gold-plated view been crushed?

Messing with electricity is a dangerous game and with hot temperatures boosting demand and prices, Julia Gillard is at risk of seeing a backlash at the next election.

It’s a funny thing, but no one in the body politic, least of all Julia Gillard, seems to be keen to take up the challenge from the electrical trades union to utter the "G-word” in the present heatwave environment.

“G” stands for “gold-plating”, of course.
