The public servant job cuts were never 'secret'

There was a good reason no one listened when Labor warned on sweeping Coalition job cuts. But Tony Abbott has been caught out overlooking figures already in plain sight.

Oh dear. Even as Kevin Rudd departs he is managing to swing like a wrecking ball across the parliament. However, this time he's wrecked the Coalition's fiscal policy.

The major mistake in the Abbott ascendency, it seems, was for the Coalition to literally believe its own slogans – particularly those that included the phrase "the worst government ever".
