Richard Dennis predicts that the biggest blow for the Hockey budget is yet to come

On 12 August 2014 Richard Dennis of the AustraliaInstitute predicts further problems in the Senate over Hockey’s budget, particularly because its potential impact on the National Party’s constituency.  ‘There is no doubt that the Coalition delivers a good deal for National Party MPs but there is also no doubt that the Liberals’; policy agenda is a bad deal for National Party voters. Most of the new initiatives in Hockey’s budget won’t make it through the Senate. The only question is whether it will be the Palmer Party or the National Party that kills them off. It’s not clear which will be worse for Prime Minister Abbott.’
