hurdling the RBA governor in his attempts to talk down the economy! What did the governor say in his evidence about this distortion and misrepresentation from the shadow Treasurer? He said:

No particular message was intended for Australia here, as I think was clear in the disclaimer at the front of the paper—which most people who have reported on the paper have overlooked, I notice.

There has rarely been a sharper rebuke of a shadow Treasurer than that delivered by the governor at the committee last week: a direct repudiation of those opposite, and another demonstration of why they are so reckless and such a risk to the Australian economy.

For our part, we will go on supporting the Australian economy, creating jobs and looking after working people.
