@scottlincicome Nope. Party blood-feuds are a policy-free zone (it’s about ‘me’). Will the conservatives pander less? Hope so, but…

I hope the added competitive pressure pushes Abbott closer to the ‘neo-liberal’ agenda (labor market reforms, less ind’y assistance…)

@snlester Process can be substantial :-) When ACTA finally surfaced it was nearly innocuous. But secrecy killed its credibility long before.
