Hockey's real economic plan is still secret

As unemployment numbers rise, no amount of sound and fury in parliament will cover up the fact that voters still don’t know what Joe Hockey’s economic plan is.

All the bluster and fury in federal parliament over things non-economic – the Manus Island riots and death, Senator Michaelia Cash’s sacking of her chief of staff, Labor’s support for parliamentary censure of Craig Thomson and much more – is providing useful cover for Treasurer Hockey’s economic plans.

“Do you think the government is trying to push us into recession?” I asked a former Labor cabinet minister mid-week. 

“I don’t think they are – I know they are,” he opined.
