Tomorrow, after weeks of waiting, Australia will finally discover what lies in store in the government's proposed legislation to impose 'a price on carbon.' Today, the current Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, is going to give a speech at a conference of her party, and, in this morning's Sydney Morning Herald, Philip Coorey speculates on what her speech will contain. What worries me is that, judging by his reporting, she is still uncertain herself about the exact terms of the deal - or could it be that a sub has wrongly added the quotation marks and the last line in this paragraph:
"It is to be expected the fuel exemptions for motorists will be extended"? Doesn't she know for sure?
