Are the wheels about to come off of the Gunner Government? The steady as she goes cabinet non consultative style of government is really hurting Labor back benchers. For it is they who have to sell the policies that they had no say in making.
The alcohol floor price is a prime example with its unintended consequences that will hurt Labor at the ballot box. Fact is that grog plays a big part in many people’s lives.
