I see the has already described the tweets above as attacking the Coalition. That’s rubbish. I am simply stating the truth: the NEG was designed & demonstrated to reduce electricity prices. So dumping it means prices will be higher than if it had been retained. QED

And before anyone suggests the previous tweet is some kind of revelation - all of the economic ministers, including myself, spent months arguing for the NEG on the basis that it would reduce electricity prices and enable us to lower our emissions.

Replying to @TurnbullMalcolm
That is the only reason it has been abandoned by the Government. The consequence is no integration of energy and climate policy, uncertainty continues to discourage investment with the consequence, as I have often warned, of both higher emissions and higher electricity prices.

It had the support of the business community and energy sector in a way that no previous energy policy had. However a right wing minority in the Party Room refused to accept the majority position and threatened to cross the floor and defeat their own government.

I see is referring to the National Energy Guarantee as “Malcolm Turnbull’s NEG”. In fact the NEG had the support of the entire Cabinet, including and especially the current PM and Treasurer. It was approved by the Party Room on several occasions.

an old friend is in town this evening and dragging me to a very edgy noise gig in some obscure venue and I'm not entirely sure when I got old and uncool but I am currently stuck in a state of utter terror regarding what I can possibly wear to that

To ignore a President’s repeated efforts to obstruct an investigation into his own disloyal behavior would inflict great and lasting damage on this country, and it would suggest that both the current and future Presidents would be free to abuse their power in similar ways.
