A missed court date, the death of comedy and a nonsensical sentencing all happened this week in AusPol. Plus Pauline. But we've ignored her.
As the war in Syria becomes all the more serious, it’s easy to blame Donald Trump. However, we’d be wrong in doing so.
Barnaby Joyce’s recent performance on Insiders proved one thing. The government continues to state that renewables are an option, while their actions say otherwise. If they pray at the altar of coal, sing it loud.
The first bricks of a hate wall, the stripping back of pretence and a picnic spoiled. Winners, all. Oh, #Auspol, what are you like?
Our criticism of Donald Trump has always been justified. However, as of late, I kind of pity him. Just like I did Holden Caulfield.
Judge Judy fantasies, inadvertent self-flagellation and a footrace to the bottom. Winners, all. However, in the harsh game of #AusPol, who secured their Internet legacy?
“Look boss, the plane,” we shriek, hailing the end of One Nation. But while Pauline might go down with the Cessna, the sentiment that powered her to the Senate will remain.
Debt. We all have it. The question is, who in Canberra wants to drag us out of it? To seek an answer, we tasked a corresponded to lurk the murky corners of parliament.
A racist fighting racism, the loss of something beautiful and Tony Abbott polishing his rifle. I see nothing out of the ordinary. Yay, #Auspol.
Those pushing for impeachment or the decapitation of the Trump administration should be careful what they wish for, as history is a fairly brutal barometer in that regard.
Yesterday’s backlash to Trump releasing info to the Russians is the latest spat in the ugly divorce between him and his Intelligence Community. So why does the Deep State have an axe to grind?
Despite Mal putting everything into his budget, and the uber right weeks that preceded it, he’s still trailing Labor. Guess what happens now.
Budget impersonations, schoolyard hijinks and tasteful semi-nudes. It’s been a fairly normal week in the rolling seas of #AusPol. Let us wheel out the participation ribbons.
The far-right memeculture emboldened by the European anti-immigration sentiment has unearthed something old but no less brutal: antisemitism.
There’s a pattern that seems to repeat in this country. Whenever a minority proudly stands for Australia, white Australians immediately bite back.
On the surface, it looks like Macron winning the French election over Le Pen is a victory for logic over populism. However, underneath the frosting, the same stale flavour exists.
We’ve survived the first 100 days of Trump, amid much criticism. So, have they been 100 failures, or 100 small victories in the name of the greater good?
The key in beating ISIS is directing our ire clearly. For if we criticise Islamic State by criticising Islam, it emboldens them further.
Tony embraced millennial life advice, satire was bested with Nazi paraphernalia and Centrelink’s awkward nickname was revealed. What a week in #AusPol.
May’s day will fall on June 8 this year, as she steers Britain through what is ostensibly the Brexit election. But if one thinks that mother will be generous, well…
Some particularly rough #AusPol discourse, stolen identities and a metamorphosis into an inanimate object. Move over, Juarez, here comes Canberra.
I think it’s safe to say that the costumed, albeit violent Berkeley protest represents the culture war in the US. Confused, shallow and vain.
