Turnbull's frank climate policy admissions

Malcolm Turnbull is towing the party line on climate policy, but his confirmation of a 2015 review of Direct Action hints at hope for a Coalition ETS. Meanwhile, it appears clear Labor will look to move the floating price forward.

When Malcolm Turnbull is around climate policy is likely to be a point of conjecture. And so it was last night when, as regular as clockwork, the topic came up on the ABC’s Q&A program and he confirmed a 2015 review of Direct Action was likely while freely acknowledging he wouldn’t be the best advocate for the Coalition’s policy.

That said, Turnbull is toeing the party line, albeit sans the three-word slogans his parliamentary colleagues appear so fond of.
