Shorten steals One Nation fuel reserve policy

MLC Centre

Mr Shorten says a Labor government will create an entity to build up national fuel reserves

Comment: Shorten wasn’t specific about what form the ‘entity’ would take. We doubt that he has thought about it.

The required reserve is approx. 8.0 Ml of fuel. The MLC Centre (pictured) is approx. 6.7 Ml of office space – shown for comparison.

Would Shorten’s entity be located in the desert? In a disused coal mine maybe (there will be lots of those in a Shorten-run Australia). Maybe he’ll park a supermegatanker on each of the Brisbane, Yarra and Parramatta rivers. Maybe he just hasn’t thought about it. He usually lets the unions do his thinking for him.
