Is Labor about to vote for repeal?

Today's speculation about a Labor backflip on carbon pricing could yet prove baseless, but it does fit neatly with some rhetorical shifts made recently by shadow minister Mark Butler.

Fairfax newspapers carried a report on Monday stating the Labor party was expected to “support axing the carbon tax” and that unnamed Labor sources believed there had been a “shift in sentiment” since the election. At the time of publishing we are still waiting on a comment from Shadow Environment Minister Mark Butler’s office to confirm and/or clarify this report.
