Hot on the heels of the GDE “me too” farce, Jon Stanhope is showing great dexterity with another “me too”.
Here’s his media release from Friday. [ED – Infrastructure Plan to build on Labor’s billion-dollar first instalment]

You have to read past several pages of slagging on the Lib document to get to the start of the policy bits, but you can see some uncanny similarity. I wonder whether the Libs would keep the Labor board or start with new appointments?
I hope the election reporting does focus on the differences and this is not yet another situation of Tweedledum trying to look indistinguishable from challenger Tweedledee …
[ED – I’d ignored the Stanhope release as a re-announcement of a budget measure but I’ll let you all decide for yourselves.]
