We know who the blockhead was, but, who was the leaker ?
http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/new...-1226268310985A news report claimed that documents from the so-called "razor gang" revealed a warning by Hockey that $70 billion needed to be found.
In fact, well-placed sources say, the documents did not contain an overall savings target at all. Hockey provided it to shadow ministers when he spoke to them in person.
And -- here's the devious bit -- he gave each of his colleagues a different figure.
The reason? So that if there was a leak he would know where it came from.
The $70 billion leak immediately pinged the leaker. But it also left Hockey with the problem that now plagues him.
