Weatherill govt has tried to be constructive, but attacked unfairly by Turnbull govt

The government must fix this unconscionable energy mess – it owes us that much Guardian, Katharine Murphy, 17 Mar 17   “…Jay Weatherill’s ambush of Josh Frydenberg this week wasn’t pretty, but Canberra had it coming – now the government needs to step up “……Who could really blame the South Australian premier this week for saying screw you Canberra in two pretty spectacular ways – with a big package to boost the state’s energy self-sufficiency, and by crash-tackling Josh Frydenberg in a suburban garage in Adelaide?

It really wasn’t the high point of democratic representation, gotcha in the garage; kind of depressing, really – but the government in Canberra really had that one coming.

 The Weatherill government has tried to play a constructive role in the energy council, the state and federal decision-making body which sits under the Coag umbrella. They’ve done that for years, in fact you’d categorise their efforts as a leadership role undertaken while Canberra roiled, raged and regressed – so they really don’t deserve whipping boy status…….
