The question we ask is: when are you going to come up with a policy to make power cheaper, or don't you have one?

Speaking of cheaper power. The Coalition plans to generate cheaper electricity by using coal and gas fired power stations while they 'transition to a cleaner economy.

Yet the Coalition has no policy in keeping gas prices down. There is no policy to maintain domestic gas reserves because they have opened up the market to the Asian gas markets. This is tipped to massively raise domestic gas prices.

No wonder coal will be our only option for 'cheaper' power. What a surprise.
