Okay – the Commission of Audit Report is now available. Having eyeballed the documents my first impression is that it contains a very modest set of recommendations. I’m happy to be proven wrong – but I suspect not. This is why the Abbott government is reaching for the tax grab.
In the press this morning Abbott government apologists were out and about putting the boot into Bill Shorten and the like – but it seems to me that the government should be trying to convince its freinds that the tax grab is a good idea, not its enemies.
