Libs’ “future PM” no expert on energy

Hyped Liberal candidate for Hume, Angus Taylor, was trumpeting the benefits of curbing the renewable energy target this week. It's just a shame his call was based on hopelessly out-of-date data.

A few days ago Angus Taylor (Rhodes Scholar, former McKinsey Partner and billed as a future prime minister by Liberal MP Alby Shultz) was on the front page of the Australian Financial Review calling for the Renewable Energy Target to essentially be neutered (existing projects would be compensated, but there would be no ongoing incentive for new projects). 

It turns out that Taylor has been distributing a ‘discussion document’ around the Liberal Party in support of his campaign prepared by Port Jackson Partners, a consulting firm in which he’s a partner.
