a fierce defence by Tom Allard of Labor's economic management, in which he expends many words alerting readers that they have never had it so good. Clear on that, men and women of Australia? So don't you bloody well grumble anymore about $1.52-per-litre petrol, which is what The Professor forked out yesterday to feed the Bunyipmobile. And those electricity bills? Well don't mind them because, as quoted cost-of-living expert Ben Phillips noted not so long ago, Carbon Tax compensation more than alleviates the pain. Oh, the other expert Allard finds is Ipsos' Rebecca Allard, a "former ALP member who resigned in disgust at branch stacking." Missed out on pre-selection, did you, Bex?
Plus there is ex-Gillard butt boy Stephen Koukoulas and, just to round things out, Ross Garnaut.
