Queensland's comical power price routine

In a throwback to the days of Joh Bjelke-Petersen, a submission to the power price inquiry from Queensland's energy minister offers plenty of words while barely addressing the core issue. It's a real worry that he seems to think the answer is the government building another coal generator.

This will sound weird, but I quite like reading over submissions to major government inquiries of policy initiatives. It’s a great way to learn who’s who in the zoo and what they think and worry about. Occasionally they can even be entertaining, due to being so bad they’re funny.
