    Dropping the PPL is good, as it was not affordable and did not encourage productivity. However, dropping PPL as a knee-jerk reaction because so many people consider it stupid, which it was, indicates that TA is not a good leader or thinker. Before being PM he was called a 'head-kicker' in Parliament. I think that was the limit of his usefulness.
