“Swinging through the trees, Tarzan Turnbull alighted before the dispatch box and, giving his chest a vigorous, if figurative thump, performed his most dazzling feat of machismo yet.

Clad only in the briefest of policy loincloths, Tarzan plans to stand between mum-and-dad Australia and $42-billion of free money, Pink Batts and school libraries.”

Annabel Crabb reflects on Malcolm Turnbull’s rejection of Kevin Rudd’s $42 billion stimulus plan. She quotes a comment from one of the Herald blogs: 

“Whatever else you think of Malcolm, he’s certainly got a pair. They’re going to be flattened like a pile of possum roadkill by the stampede of punters towards Big Kev’s fistful of dollars. But he won’t have died wondering.”
