Comments on Michelle Grattan "Broad coalition formed to seek common ground on tackling climate change", 30/06/2015
It is likely to be the case such as that the devil is in the details. Everyone can be talking very nobly without actually committing. Let's weight and see how this broad coalition will develop overtime.
The fiasco of what occurred at developing the mining tax by the former Treasurer Wayne Swan in Australia was a good example. How did the miners, the Treasurer and other parties get together on that? Leaving the differences among the miners aside, it would not be too exaggerating it was likely to be the final straw that it exposed the division between Swan and Rudd and that it destroyed the prime ministership of Kevin Rudd.
