An eagle-eyed tipster has pointed out the similarity between those leaked policies and the wish-list from our friends at the IPA. The IPA issued 75 policy commands; here are just some of them taken up by Tony Abbott so far:

    Re: the author of the Coalition’s policies. It would be interesting to know what a number of organisations are demanding of the coalition, not just the IPA. For example, the wish list of the Chamber of Commerce, the Mining Council and the Jewish lobby would make very interesting reading.
