Turnbull cabinet reshuffle who is going where — Peter Slipper (@PeterSlipper) April 16, 2016
It was a classic moment for Turnbull and, though the press is currently focused on the “winnowing” from the reshuffle (his “win” is to keep the same three seats plus independents), the fact it came in the midst of his budget review speech – at a time when he was the most unpopular government minister in history – and his cabinet reshuffle is also making headlines shows the importance of this one.
Turnbull has been forced to defend the budget during the Turnbull Government’s Budget Committee, and this is his response to questions on a host of issues he did not specifically mention at his speech on Tuesday night.
One of the things Turnbull did not say is his support for the $3.8 billion in extra funds for the Reserve Bank and his policy of “one rate, with no cap on rates” – something he said is “unpopular”, and which is also the case of the Turnbull Government policy of “let’s have no negative gearing” – as they were both key budget items during the Howard Labor government.
In particular, Turnbull attacked the Coalition government’s move in the House of Representatives to pass a tax on foreign direct investment. This will affect many Australian families, because foreign ownership has generally been one of the key drivers of Australian household wealth in recent years.
Turnbull was also caught off guard, however, that Malcolm Turnbull will not attend the G20, but he was able to do so to attend a Sydney-based conference this weekend, with the Treasurer, Scott Morrison, the Prime Minister and the Treasurer’s chief of staff, Stephen Smith.
For example, he was able to attend this weekend’s meeting about “Australia-Australia relations” at the Sydney Institute, by saying he could not be there, but he did meet two of his senior ministers at a dinner at the club and sat with Treasury secretary, Steve Costello (who in the lead-모나코 카지노u로투스 홀짝p to the election was being described as “the guy who had to pay” for the government’s failed promise to change the GST).
“I didn’t know that,” he said, when asked if he was aware of who was sitting at the table.
“I was disappointed in [former treasurer] Joe Hockey for his speech. I mean, if the Treasurer didn’t want us to be able to talk about those changes, he’s obviously entitled to not do it.”
So is he willing t보성출장샵o go?
