Energy policy in Australia has been a casualty of glib three-word slogans. With this context in mind, a Liberal said to me recently he had a new five-word slogan for the prime minister on energy: leave it to the states.
Too late, of course. Malcolm Turnbull, somewhat bravely, in the Humphrey Appleby sense, has taken on political responsibility for energy prices and network reliability – normally issues that state premiers get political heat about.
