The Chief Minister would seem to be a little rattled.
Having just announced that he’s found a spare $97 million under the couch you’d think his only problem would be explaining the pressing necessity to rip the guts out of community schooling.
Instead yesterday we were treated to a plaintive Why would you trust the Liberals?, followed by a screeching “Liberals missing in action (or just on a couch watching the Olympics)”.
Napoleon said “never interrupt your enemy while he’s in the middle of making a mistake”. One finds it hard to imagine that the Chief Minister is giving all this ‘advice’ to his opponents out of the kindness of his heart.
I too am dismayed at the low-content small-target strategy the Liberals are deploying, but to get this reaction it appears to be working for now.
UPDATE: Ooh, another one getting snippy about the quiet coming from the Shadow Ministry.
To be fair he has a bit of a point. The Liberal strategy is not (IMHO) in the tradition of robust democracy and appears to hope to profit from the ignorance, and susceptibility to marketing, of the electorate.
