    I would like to add to this post that I don't think the Libs are actually following through in the statements/contention Hockey is making though. And this just isn't limited to Abbott's paid parental scheme.

    I also think it is soft cock that Hockey made this speech from London.

    But I nevertheless agree with his general point.

    Coorey summed it up pretty well in his article today in Fairfax:

    In isolation, everything Hockey said made rational economic sense and it will do his standing no harm with the right of the Liberal Party.

    Hockey has started to portray himself as the economic hardliner in the Coalition. This builds on his resistance, both internal and external, to further subsidies for the automotive industry and his pledge, that if elected, to not subsidise industries the Coalition believes to be unsustainable.

    But the approach lacked consistency with much of what the Coalition has said and done more broadly, suggesting there may be an internal struggle going on.

    Coorey also mentioned Hockey has opposed the means testing of every piece of middle class welfare since 2007.

    Yep.

    The Libs have been serial offenders of encouraging middle class welfare, so either Hockey has been forced to toe the party line against his true beliefs, or he's a hypocrite.
