Around the time that Ken Henry was preparing to hand over his report, Tony Abbott was engineering a challenge to lead the Liberal party. Part of his new leadership team saw the appointment of Nationals Senator Barnaby Joyce as the Shadow Minister for Finance. Actually he's added Debt Reduction to his job title, just in case there was any doubt where his focus lies.
On today's BTalk I ask Barnaby Joyce why he thinks the government has delayed the release of the report and what sort of changes we need to see in our taxation system. Whether you agree with what he says, you can always be certain that he is a man who says what he thinks, on everything from emissions trading to Ken Henry's views on banking competition.
