Out of the shadow
God protect us from yet another strategic plan produced by either political party and the out of touch, Canberra centric APS. Government's role is to concentrate on only what cannot be done by the private sector. This would include infrastructure, trade access, biosecurity, action against abuse of market power and consumer protection. JF keeps repeating the Labor chant of more regulation in the name of climate change, sustainability and animal rights. Farmers and country people know where all of this will end up. Labor is missing the opportunity of a lifetime.
