As Peter Smith explains at left, Labor’s grab for for senior Australians’ nest eggs would likely have been thwarted before it was revealed by a government with a record of backbone and principle. In other words, Bill Shorten & Co., simply would not have dared, especially not now.

That’s confidence, folks, or hubris if you prefer.
