Why the government is a brake on the economy
Peter Martin provides a detailed list of the obviously wrong claims Joe Hockey has made, and in some cases, repeated (despite their error being widely reported.)
It's clear that Hockey is a complete dud of a Treasurer, and really the job just seems beyond him. He, with Abbott, is another living, breathing example of the Peter Principle. (I suppose if there is one thing the government can be credited with, it's for reminding us that that rule of management theory is valid.)
His hopes to be PM one day have completely evaporated. That's life...
