The Greens knock Rudd off his trolley

Greens plans for a moratorium on new Coles and Woolworths stores while ACCC oversight of the sector is investigated will be a roadblock for Kevin Rudd’s quick-fix policy spree.

It’s a good time for lobby groups to get in with their shopping lists of emergency reform requirements – if the Rudd government thinks it’ll lose skin over whatever ‘crisis’ is presented, you’ll have your new policy by tomorrow morning. 

Labor’s quick-fix spree started with issues of general public concern/fear: carbon tax problem, solved; boats, done; return to surplus, no problem.
