Heads roll at the Department of Slogans

The Coalition's pledge to ‘end the waste’ through ‘natural attrition’ differs little from Labor’s ‘efficiency dividend’. It’s one of many lines that may bring Tony Abbott more trouble than expected.

A dangerous delusion prevails amongst Coalition ranks that most Australians voted for the Abbott government's policies rather than against the sorry circus that Labor had become.

Why is that dangerous? Because they will tend to take their list of 'mandates' more seriously, and interpret them more literally, than most of their voters would wish.
