Labor leader Anthony Albanese has backed calls by Labor front bencher Mark Butler for a rigorous review of the policies that it took to the last election. Butler said on 9 September that the review should be "ruthless and unsparing", and that nothing should be considered sacrosanct. Although Labor’s review of its election defeat is not due to be finished until later in 2019, there are growing signs that it intends to abandon the ‘tax and spend’ agenda that it took to the election. Albanese says its new agenda would be based around job creation and economic growth.
