The Opposition’s unrelenting attack on the Government over carbon pricing has been simple and devastatingly effective. But Tony Abbott probably should have told his colleagues to hold off purchasing shares in an industry he has predicted will be shattered.
One of the Opposition Leader’s favourite strategies is to visit a family-run store, or a factory, or a pharmacy or a shopping centre. He’s been to manufacturing sites and trucking businesses, greengrocers – and, of course, mining sites - to smile, shake hands with workers, then talk about how much they’re all going to suffer under a carbon tax.
Meanwhile, it seems a significant portion of his party has been off buying shares in mining. Which tends to show some sort of confidence in the future of the sector.
