New convert Malcolm Turnbull yesterday: "We don’t want to have a repeat of the Hazelwood situation where a big power station is shut down and then there is nothing to put in its place." Turnbull in March: "There is more than adequate unused capacity in our electricity-generation system ... to make up for the loss of the generation from Hazelwood."
Liberal MP Tim Wilson said opponents of same-sex marriage should still vote yes because only the Liberals would then protect their freedoms of speech and religion. But now: "Finance Minister Mathias Corman ... said the government would hand responsibility over the final shape of any bill to the parliament."

What is his "win" here?: "Malcolm Turnbull has struck a deal with power giant AGL to prevent a looming energy shortage by extending the life of a vital coal-fired power station for five years, unless the company drafts a plan ... to install new generators to take its place." No, there is no deal, and AGL says its plan includes just cutting demand.
