Graeme Samuel was on Radio National's Sunday Extra last Sunday. In this interview he suggested that the economic debate had been "debased" because a few people were suggesting re-introducing tariffs.
This reminds me a lot of Jeff Kennett, who, if you disagreed with him, said "You're irrelevant!" Similarly, Peter Costello would just smirk.
Fuck you, Samuel. Instead of debating, accuse your "opponents" of debasing the debate. When you were with the ACCC, I thought you were pretty reasonable, but it turns out you're just another right-wing despot who doesn't want debate at all trying to steamroll over everyone else.
