Kevin Rudd’s emissions backflip. Combet defend government’s insulation backflip, Turnbull backflip on decision to quit.
What does backflip mean? – to return to your previous position, change your mind (or position) But try as I might every time I do a back flip nothing changes – I am in the same place as when I started.
About face or U turn maybe, but backflip, I don’t think so. However, I can’t see journos doing a back flip and changing.
