The Democratic Party is on the political ropes. They’ve lost Congress, most state legislatures, and the Whitehouse. This weekend’s vote for DNC chair may foretell the midterm elections, the 2020 Presidential, and beyond.
The final form of Malcolm, the re-return of the returning returner and one very sad panda. What a week of #AusPol it was. We survived it. At least until Sunday, you know, when I have to work, yeah?
Yes, while we may blame the Coalition for all things this week, we should wonder why Bill Shorten’s criticism hasn’t been volcanic.
Last week, Tony Blair took it upon himself to change the minds of those who voted for Brexit. As he is one of those responsible for circumstances that enabled the vote, perhaps he should quietly slip to the background.
Donald Trump, Brexit, the rise of Pauline Hanson. That’s fine. However, if we continue this path of who’s complaint is loudest, I fear for the next election cycle.
The amnesiac 1%, a Senator almost reaching professional puberty and parliament replaced by cyborgs; it was a standard week in #Auspol. But who won?
If Netanyahu’s visit does go ahead, the Australian government and Jewish community leaders must seek unambiguous answers to crucial questions which must be asked.
Yes, we all cheered when one of the Trumps handed in his resignation, but the manner of Michael Flynn’s exit speaks of a rather bleak, and easy to imagine future.
When Bernardi turned his back on the Coalition, a brief pang of SSM optimism was felt: would it now be discussed differently? We quickly got our answer.
I come from a family who have worked in the fossil fuel sector, but in the face of overwhelming evidence – and apathy from the government – it’s time for a change.
Not the hero we want, but perhaps the one we need. Maybe. The Masked Lib returns to point out that the Coalition favouring One Nation is the right move for balance, and avoiding our own Trump.
A deflection, a donnybrook and an opportunity for sweet #AusPol merch squandered… We’re wondering who escaped Question Time’s first week with their dignity intact. (Trick question.)
With the Brit parliament currently debating the particulars of the Brexit, there’s still the matter of the EU looking to bandage the cuts of those who voted against it.
Cory Bernardi flying the coop is, for the most part, harmless. However, with the hen house door ajar, the next one to go could be the start of something serious.
The second edition of One Nation is not to be confused with the first, for Pauline’s new approach is a threat not only to the Left but also those who represent conservatism in this country.
There’s a cathartic place to group and complain on Twitter as a collection of Trump voters are voicing their regrets.
The “worst deal in the world” represents a unique opportunity for Malcolm Turnbull to save his Prime Ministership, and the financial future of our nation.
A hung up phone, a search for an Internet bride and the canonisation of Joe Hockey. I’d ask who won the sack race of #AusPol this week, but it seems pointless.
The phone call was terrible, and the deal even worse. Three theories about how Trump will handle Obama’s plans for Australia’s asylum seekers.
The genius of Donald Trump is something to celebrate. In a solitary week he’s unified a disparate nation, and shot ancient literature back into prominence. Beat that, Obama.
Let us not lose sight of the facts. Malcolm Turnbull concreted our refugee agreement with the US, despite the ugliness of Trump’s immigration ban.
