Laurie Oakes reports:
Two months ago the Prime Minister made a big fellow of himself when he met insulation installers on the lawns of Parliament House.
He told them the home insulation scheme suspended because of rip-offs, shonky work and safety concerns following four deaths, would resume in slightly different form by June.
Promise broken. Do click to observe Kevin Rudd’s historic meeting with the installers, and Oakes’s perfect response to Greg Combet’s claim that the insulation scheme wasn’t an expensive shambles. The clean-up bill for this insanity is expected to hit one billion dollars.
