CANBERRA OBSERVED Can the Abbott government turn it around?
Despite the Abbott government’s success in abolishing the carbon tax, the mining tax, stopping people-trafficking from Indonesia, and negotiating trade deals with Australia’s largest trading partners, China, Japan and South Korea, its first year of office will be remembered for its failures.
